Author: Castiñeiras, Manuel (et al)
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9788857204932
Description: Milan: Skira, 2010. 29cm., hardcover, 430pp. prof. illus., most in color. English text. Exhibition catalogue (Paris, Vatican City, Santiago de Compostela). Summary: The international nature of Santiago de Compostela in the 12th century cannot be understood without the exceptional figure of Diego Gelmirez (1070?–1140). Immediately after Diego Gelmirez became bishop, he undertook the struggle to achieve metropolitan dignity; this was obtained in 1120 and he gained the privilege of becoming the first archbishop of Santiago. In the following decades the so-called Pilgrims’ Way to Santiago grew like never before, placing the pilgrimage on the same level as Rome and Jerusalem and turning the apostle’s village into one of Christendom’s main pilgrimage centres.
