High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Way of St. James or
St. James' Way (Galician: O Camino de Santiago, Spanish: El Camino
de Santiago, French: Chemin de St-Jacques, German: Jakobsweg) is
the pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in
Galicia in northwestern Spain, where tradition has it that the
remains of the apostle Saint James are buried. The Way of St James
has existed for over a thousand years. It was one of the most
important Christian pilgrimages during medieval times, and a
pilgrimage route on which a plenary indulgence could be earned;
other major pilgrimage routes include the Via Francigena to Rome
and the pilgrimage to Jerusalem. Legend holds that St. James's
remains were carried by boat from Jerusalem to northern Spain where
he was buried on the site of what is now the city of Santiago de
Compostela. There are some, however, who claim that the bodily
remains at Santiago belong to Priscillian, the fourth-century
Galician leader of an ascetic Christian sect, Priscillianism, who
was one of the first Christian heretics to be executed.
