Quantcast
The Manuscripts of the Codex Calixtinus

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.

This talk from Professor Stone concerns that Codex Calixtinus, the five-part compilation of text around Saint James and the Cathedral at Compostela. Offering a tour of each of the five books of the codex, she describes the role of music and liturgy in the Codex, and in the perpetuation of myths, stories, and histories of Saint James, the Cathedral, and the pilgrimage.

M. Alison Stones, Professor of History of Art and Architecture, University of Pittsburgh
