Translation of James Apostle

December 30th

The latest historical news from [James] come from Palestine, where (the first of the Apostles of Jesus) martyred and beheaded in Jerusalem. From here arises a deep tradition that his body is moved to the end of the world, to Western Europe, Galicia (Spain). It arrived by boat to Iria Flavio (Padrón) and there it would be conveyed inland to end up buried in lands of the current Saintiago de Compostela. The story rises to the tradition with the passage of generations and the Muslim invasion, to rediscover the Tomb in the 9th century, starting a second story of the Apostle James that would mark Spain and across Europe
