The Transfer of the Body of Saint James the Greater at the Palace of Queen Lupa

1480 - 1490. Mixed method on panel Room 051A

After being brought to Iria, in Galicia, by boat -the scene visible in the background of the painting- Saint James’s body was carried in a cart pulled by two bulls. In this painting, Athanasius and Theodore, James’s disciples, walk behind the cart, dressed as pilgrims, while Queen Lupa watches the procession, astonished to see that the wild bulls she sent have been tamed. The painting probably comes from the church of Santiago in Zaragoza.
