St. James lectures: We may never know what exactly was found in a ninth century Galician tomb, or why this was first said (and soon widely believed) to be the resting place of St. James. But we know that this claim at a distant site in Spain launched one of the most popular saints' cults of the Middle Ages; this legacy still draws thousands of pilgrims and tourists to walk hundreds of miles along the Way of St. James to Compostela. James D'Emilio, professor of humanities at the University of South Florida, discusses "Making and Marketing a Cult: St. James at Compostela," at 6:30 p.m. Monday in CWY 109 — at C.W. Bill Young Hall on the University of South Florida campus. On Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. in the Grace Allen Room of the campus library, he talks about "John the Baptist's Two Heads and Other Oddities: Dueling Shrines in the Age of Pilgrimage." A panel discussion, "From Pilgrimage to Crusade: St. James 'Moorslayer' and Holy War,'' will take place Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in CWY 109. "The Romanesque Cathedral of Compostela: The Art of Pilgrimage" is the topic for 6:30 p.m. Thursday in CWY 109. The lectures are free and open to the public. Contact Liz Kicak (; 813 974 3657) for more information or disability accommodations, and visit The Humanities Institute website at
