4.0 out of 5 stars Very complete and entertaining book, Dec 22 2003
Ce commentaire est de: The Pilgrimage Road to Santiago: The Complete Cultural Handbook (Paperback)
I was expecting to know something about the medieval heretic Prisciliano but the authors don't mention him. Prisciliano is, according to studies by Victoria Armesto, the real person buried in place of Santiago. Poor old Prisciliano will have to keep waiting in ostracism a little bit longer...
Another thing: The cockleshells that symbolize the pilgrim. The authors don't mention the theory that relates it to the birth of Venus (see Botticelli's work).
Anyway, the book reads easily.
