The #chapel of #Santiagomatamoros - or, Saint James the Moor-slayer.

On the 23rd of May 844 A.D., a mythical battle took place at Clavijo, in northeastern Spain, between the Asturian forces of Ramiro I and Islamic Cordoban forces that allegedly involved the appearance of one of Jesus' apostles- James, the son of Zebedee.
Legend maintains that a peace treaty had been made between the two kingdoms that required a tribute of 100 female virgins from Asturias. Ramiro promptly refused to comply with this term and a massive Islamic force marched against him. On the first day, Ramiro was soundly beaten but later that night he received a vision from one of Christ's twelve apostles, St. James the Great, the brother of John, who counseled him of how to guide his forces the next day. The next day, a knight clad in armor, riding a white horse, carrying a white banner with a red cross and bathed in light led the charge that ensured their victory.

My recent mural titled Year 1531 AD.
This piece is my reference to the event which happend in year 1531 AD ,when conquistadors came to that land and meet aboriginal peoples called Otomi.
By the legend they agreed to fight with no weapons. They decided- winner will be master of the land. Fight was long and Otomi almost won, but sky got dark suddenly and they've seen cross of fire and horseman in the sky (Full sun eclipse happend). Otomi were so scared of that and loose a fight.
Was it really unexpected or spaniards knew about eclipse in advance, nobody know it now. It is how it written in history by the winners. But interesting fact is that horsman by the legend was actually patron of conquistadors - Saint James apostle- Santiago Matamoros - The Moorslayer - justification and patron of the spaniards during the reconquista in Spain. And patron of conquista of the whole recently discovered new world, not only Mexico...

#SantiagoMatamoros, con los moros ocultos por flores políticamente correctas.

🇪🇸 -- Tradition states that St James miraculously appeared to fight for the Christian army during the legendary battle of Clavijo, and was henceforth called Santiago Matamoros (Saint James the Moor-slayer). Santiago, y cierra, España! ("St. James and strike for Spain") was the traditional battle cry of medieval Spanish (Christian) armies. Cervantes has Don Quixote explaining that "the great knight of the russet cross was given by God to Spain as patron and protector". I just noted while posting these images, that the flowers strategically hide the moors below the horse being slayed. Not appropriate for display in a church I guess. .
