31,20 € inkl. MwSt.
By the early twelfth century, the relicts of St. James Major, apostole of Spain, beneath the high altar in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, were being enclosed in a splendid building adorned with monumental sculpture and precious metalwork, and had long been the goal of the most popular pilgrimages of the Middle Ages. The Codes Calixtinus is a fivepart compilation of texts and music directed towards the cult of St. James, of which the most complete and earliest copy is a luxuriously illuminated manuscript made in the twelfth century and housed in the Cathedral Archives at Santiago.
The Pittsburgh Conference of 1988 drew together specialists from different disciplines to address the issues raised by the cult of St. James, by the building that houses his shrine, and by what is said about them in each of the five Books of the Codes Calixtinus.
