I've heard many conflicting stories about the first camino passport (or credential). Does anyone have links to books or other articles about the history of this document? When? Why? Different versions over time?

SuperPilgrim,
Much info can be found in earlier Forum threads regarding the Credential or Pilgrim Passport. Try searching each of these terms combined with "history" in the Forum searchbox.


Further useful sources for earlier Credential history are cited within several posts in this 2016 thread begun by fellow Forum member Rebekah Scott



Stay safe and happy research!
This was a great letter. I would love to see it brought forward to Forum today, for revisiting.
