The complex process of construction and evolution of the image of the Apostle James in the European arts from the High Middle Ages to the present-day is one of the most fascinating chapters regarding the analysis of hagiographic iconography. And this, not so much because of the eschatological depth, but because of the thaumaturgical and inspiring power of the character of the fisherman, the brother of John the Evangelist, the member of Jesus' close circle and the evangelizer of Hispania. This image, carried by the extraordinary rise of pilgrimages after the inventio of James’ sepulcher at the beginning of the ninth century, will spread across Europe through three iconographic forms: the Apostle, the warrior (miles Christi, leader of the Christian kingdoms against Muslim reign and eventually Patron Saint of such kingdoms), and the pilgrim. Along with this image, significant symbols will appear, as, for example, the scallop.
