Peaceable Projects Inc. is a U.S.-based non-profit group that brings the vast resources of the wide world together with the ongoing needs of the people who live, work, and travel on the Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail network in Spain.
I recommend a Camino travel book with a spin :”A Jew on the Camino”. It is a Camino log with a twist- describing towns and villages along the Frances route from a Jewish historic perspective. Available digitally on Amazon Kindle.
It is impossible to create compatibility between historic facts and religious myth.
Historical facts: many thousands of enslaved captives from Judea were brought to Spain as a result of the failed uprising of the Jews in 66-70 CE. This is well documented by several contemporary historians.
Jews first arrived in Spain as slaves of the Romans, following the fall of Jerusalem in 70CE. This predates Chritians arrival. Jewish slaves built Leon, Pamplona and the road connecting them. These are the roots of the Spanish Jewish community.
A very interesting topic to research! Hope to see the outcome. I personally wrote a Camino history from a Jewish perspective, titled "A Jew on the Camino, with details of Jewish communities along the Camino predating Christianity.
Good luck with your research
Sounds like blood flow in arteries was being interrupted by weight of bag. I had the same experience. Called my doctor back home and she suggested giving my shoulders a few days of rest. I used the Correos bag forwarding service for 2 days and this enabled me to complete my Camino.
