Santiago de Compostela
Authors: Dagenais, John (2013)
PROJECT ARCHIVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Santiago de Compostela is one of the great pilgrimage basilicas of Europe. Our restoration project shows the building as it appeared when dedicated by Bishop Pedro Muñoz on April 3, 1211 A.D. In addition to restoring the architecture of the cathedral and placing it within an urban simulation of the town, the project also offers a reconstruction of the songs and sounds typically heard in the building in the thirteenth century.
The reconstruction project was initiated by UCLA Professor John Dagenais (Department of Spanish and Portuguese) for use in his introductory course in Medieval Spanish literature and as an ongoing research project for students in a summer-session class studying and traveling the pilgrimage route.
