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.
