James the Spaniard
In Response To: Andrew, the Flying Scotsman ()

Charles, don't pay attention on Christian traditions because they are not very historical. Remember that according to tradition the Apostle James was preaching in Spain and now he is considered the patron saint of Spaniards, but now we know that James never was in Spain, and that tradition rose in the Middle Age due to a different reason (mainly muslim rivalry). Obviously, Christian historians never agree to me, but History is thus. Every land has its apostle, and its own tradition, and its own reasons for those legends.
