Chiesa di San Giacomo - San Giacomo – Spoleto
San Giacomo Maggiore sostiene il pellegrino impiccato.
There are various versions of the miracle, a couple of German pilgrims went with the young son on a pilgrimage to St. James of Compostela and stopped at a tavern, the innkeeper's daughter fell in love with the young man, who refused her, in spite, he hid a silver cup in the young man's bag and accused him of theft, referring him to his father, who found the cup condemned to the hanging of the young German. While the two parents were watching astonished, the dangling son miraculously appears in San Giacomo, who supports him and saves him. When it was reported to the bargello that had issued the condemnation that the hanged young man was still alive he blurted out saying "like those roosters that are on the plate" and at those words the roosters resumed life and sang. The frescoes of the apse are framed by a rich architectural decoration where, in two tables, we read: ANO. DNI / MDXXVI.
