On the Cover
The Santiago Pilgrim's Emblems
: A collection of walking sticks and scallop shells, traditionally associated with St. James and Spain's Camino de Santiago. Last spring, a group of Fordham students, led by history Professor Richard Gyug, Ph.D., walked from León to Santiago, studying the architecture and history of the pilgrimage route along the way (see "The Journey, Not the Destination").
