Quantcast
Art, Experience, and the Exotic on the Road to Santiago

This year marks the holy year of the city Santiago de Compostela, when the Feast Day of Saint James the Greater—July 25—falls on a Sunday. This program revisits the magnificent Romanesque structure with a virtual presentation reconstructing the Romanesque Cathedral, talks, and a musical feast featuring pieces from the famed Codex Calixtinus, performed by the group Lionheart.

Dean Jerrilynn Dodds discusses the common experiences of pilgrims from the Middle Ages to today. Considering the vulnerability  inherent in the pilgrims disconnected, in-between state, Dodds describes the pilgrim’s openness to religious experience, and his willingness to become part of a transient and devout pilgrim community. Dodds gives a fascinating talk on the roles these ideas played in Spain's historical multiculturalism and in its history of suppression of that multiculturalism, considering everything from the Inquisition and Fascism to the diversity of pilgrims today.

Jerrilynn D. Dodds, Dean of the College, Sarah Lawrence College
