On the Road to Compostela
The pilgrimage route(s) to the Shrine of Saint James at Compostela in the northwest corner of Spain has been inviting pilgrims for more than a thousand years. The first example of a tourist (pilgrims’) guide was produced in the twelfth century for pilgrims on this way and is enshrined in the Codex Callixtenus. Yale alums have traveled the most famous route, the “French Way” from the Pyrenees to Compostela, at least twice in the last decade. The faculty leader of these trips will lead a virtual reenactment of the experience, reflecting on the history of Spain, the monuments of Burgos, Leon, and other sites along the way, the dynamics of the religious practice of pilgrimage, and the legends preserved in the medieval codex. If walking the Camino is not a possibility, at least following along with the Alumni Academy will be possible in COVID time.
