St. James - Banner BAN868
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey
Saint James, Apostle.
Also known as James the Greater to
distinguish him from James the Less who was also an Apostle.
James was the brother of John the
Apostle, they were the Sons of Zebedee and Salome, she was also a follower of
Jesus. Mark 3:17 indicates Jesus called James and John the 'Sons of Thunder'
because of their evangelical zeal.
James, John and Peter are mentioned as
witnessing the raising of Jairus' daughter, the Transfiguration and the Agony
in the Garden at Gethsemane.
James is believed to be the first
Apostle to be martyred in 44AD, beheaded under Herod Agrippa; he is pictured
holding a sword to indicate this.
He is the patron saint of Spain and
Portugal and the shrine at Santiago (St James) de Compostela in northwest
Spain remains an important pilgrimage site.
