The Way of Saint James
Pilgrims' Process, Inc

Georgiana Goddard King's seminal study, The Way of Saint James, is finally reissued. Completed in 1917, this three-volume masterpiece is a wide-ranging exploration of the history, literature, legends, and architecture of the Camino de Santiago. It is based on Professor King's "three years wanderings" on foot and by cart, mule, and other conveyance on the Spanish pilgrimage road, and on extensive academic research with particular emphasis on medieval art and architecture. Professor King was both a well-respected scholar and a keen observer of her surroundings. As a result, she has given us a fascinating, detailed description of both life and architecture on the Camino de Santiago nearly 100 years ago.Thoroughly documented, with extensive notes and appendices, this is a must-have reference book not only for art historians but also for any true aficionado of the Camino de Santiago. Volume II: Burgos to Santiago. Introduction by George D. Greenia, College of William and Mary.
