Santiago de Compostela, 08 January 2020

Today, the Xunta de Galicia opens the registration period for the 11th International Congress of Jacobean Studies, dedicated this year to the archbishop Berenguel de Landoria on the occasion of the seventh centenary of his arrival to Santiago de Compostela.

This meeting, organised by the International Committee of Experts of the Way of Saint James, will be held between the 19th and 22nd of February at the Museum of Pilgrimage and Santiago, with 20 speakers billed from countries such as France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Portugal and the United States, among others. All of the speakers are veteran representatives of institutions, chairs and centres of study, and will be joined by specialists with a great reach who will also present valuable reflections and contributions on significant aspects of Berenguel de Landoria and on Jacobean culture.

The appointment, which has taken place since 1993, will have the scientific management of Adeline Rucquoi, a member of the International Committee of Experts of the Camino de Santiago and a PhD in history from the Sorbonne University (Paris) and Director of Research Emeritus at the French National Centre for Scientific Research.

Those who are interested in attending the conference should fill in the online registration form before 13th February.

This year’s conference is part of the Xacobeo 21 programme submitted last December, which aims ensure that the Galician population participate in and enjoy the Way. More specifically, this Conference is part of the Xacobeo Reflection programme, with which the Xunta seeks to generate a space for analysing the spiritual reality and symbolism of the Way and the Xacobeo through knowledge and debate.
