I appreciated hearing the history of pilgrimages and how they culminated at Santiago de Compostela. This lecture compared very favorably with a far more expensive one that I participated in with a rival carrier.
Dr Ruiz’ lecture on the Camino was excellent. If you have ever walked this pilgrimage, plan to walk this pilgrimage, or just dream of walking it but have not made any plans, this lecture is an absolute must.
What a treat to finally take a seminar with Teofilo Ruiz! As a UCLA alum who realized only too late I would have liked to have taken one of his art history classes as an undergrad, I relished the opportunity to take this seminar now. I only wish the session were longer as it's clear there's so much history to cover in the Camino.
Teo is a great storyteller of history! Such an interesting topic and I liked hearing about Teo’s personal connection to the Camino.
I learned so much on this very enjoyable seminar.
