Sample text

St. James, that mild-mannered apostle, became known as St. James Matamoros, the Moor slayer. He is often portrayed in Spain wearing Conquistador armour, on horseback on churches and cathedrals, wielding a sword with the heads of dead Moors around the horse’s feet. In this world lit only by fire, the belief in an all-powerful and often vengeful God was almost universal. It turns out that, like so many other Christian rituals and myths, this journey across northern Spain may well have been a pagan pilgrimage thousands of years before the Way of St.

Perhaps I could just stay here for five weeks and send fake messages about the trip. It is tempting. 21 April, in Pamplona It’s 0930, it’s sunny, and I am sitting on a concrete bench in the plaza of the Palacio de Congreso y Auditorio de Navarre waiting for El Corte Ingles (a large, multi-storey department store) to open. I have already been to the archbishop’s palace to collect my credencial, but the palace is closed. No clue as to when it will open. I was told that the Corte Ingles would open at 0900, but evidently not.

Santiago is where St. James is said to be buried3, and his tomb and shrine has been a major site for Christians. It is not clear to me why I am doing this, except that I feel a compulsion to make this journey. I do not think that I am religious, so this is not a “pilgrimage” for me, although I hope that the journey will have spiritual overtones. I do not, however, expect that this will be Shirley McLean’s camino. I intended from the start to walk it alone. I would do it either in the spring, mid-April and May, or in the fall, September to mid-October.
