St Jame's shrine
by Erasmus

The pilgrimage to the popular shrine of St James at Compostella was as important in the middle ages as that to Rome or Jerusalem. Erasmus did himself compose a liturgy for the pilgrimage shrine of the Virgin Mother of Loreto in 1523 without, however, alluding in it to the miraculous translation of the house said to have taken place in the thirteenth century but first recognized by a Bull of 1470.
