Additional Information In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: The University ofthe South The iconographie tradition ofSantiago combines the Byzantine tradition ofrepresenting James as a member ofthe fellowship of apostles Melczer 63 with innovative medieval images of the saint as Santiago Peregrino clad in the appurtenances ofhis own followers, and as a mounted warrior, Santiago Matamoros, engaged in battle against a Muslim enemy.
In the Byzantine tradition, representations of Santiago as apostle or evangelist bear no distinguishing features, apart from context, to differentiate James from other apostles.

Matamoros is now consigned to the church sacristy, where it remains covered by a black cloth formerly used in funeral masses.
