Encyclopedia > St James

Saint James can refer to the following:

  • Several men mentioned in the New Testament, whose various epithets and euphemisms cause some uncertainties:
    • James, son of Zebedee, an apostle, brother of John the Apostle; also called Saint James the Great. He is venerated at Compostela as Santiago de Compostela.
    • James, brother of Jesus, mentioned in Matthew 13:55; Mark 6:3; Galatians 1:19. He must be identified with the James mentioned in Galatians 2:2 and 2:9; Acts 12:17, 15:13ff. and 21:18; and I Corinthians 15:7. He is identified as Saint James the Just, head of the early Christian Church in Jerusalem.
    • Saint James the Less, son of Alphaeus and brother of the apostle Matthew, also identified with "James, son of Mary", mentioned in Mark 15:40 (ò mikros "the little"); Matthew 27:56. Probably the son of Cleophas or Clopas (John 19:25) where "Maria Cleophæ" is generally translated "Mary the wife of Cleophas", as married women are commonly distinguished by the addition of their husband's name.
    • James, brother of Jude, mentioned in Jude 1:1. Most Catholic commentators identify Jude with the "Judas Jacobi", which they translate "Judas brother of James" (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13).
  • A number of places, all named for Saint James the Great:
    • Saint James, Minnesota
    • Saint James, Missouri
    • Saint James, New York
    • St James, Cape Town, South Africa
    • St James's Palace, London
      • Court of St James's, London
      • Saint James's Park, London
    • St James, Western Australia

In Spanish, the name translates as Santiago.

CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. James the Less (1074 words)
The James (5) of Jude 1:1 must certainly be identified with James (3), the brother of the Lord and the Bishop of Jerusalem.
This identification requires the identity of Mary, the mother of James (Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40), with Mary the wife of Cleophas (John 19:25), and, consequently, the identity of Alpheus (2) and Clopas (4).
James was called to the Apostolate with his brother Jude; in all the four lists of the Apostles, he stands at the head of the third group (Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13).

For the third time in four years, the St. James Court Art Show has been named the best fine art and design show in the country by Sunshine Artist magazine, America’s premier show and festival publication.
Rankings are determined by artist’s vote, with St. James receiving nearly twice as many votes as its nearest competitor.
The St. James Court Art Show is a juried fine arts and fine crafts show produced by a consortium of five non-profit neighborhood associations: Belgravia Court, South 3rd Street, 1300 South Third Street, St. James Court and South Fourth Street; and the West End Baptist Church.
