You should start getting to know the Gazetteer and the Hagiographic Register at the end of Melczer’s book.  Each of you must become a specialist on a specific place on the road.  You are to know the history of the place and its role in the culture of the pilgrimage to Santiago, what important monuments we will find there, what style those monuments are in, what saints and other important figures are associated with the place.  You need to have a sense of the layout of the place, the locations of monuments, etc.  What region is it in?  What are the characteristics of that region?  Does it have any other historical peculiarities?  What works of literature are associated with the place?  Etc.  When we get to these locations you will help show the rest of us around.  Melczer is not the only source for this information.  Some of this you will have to complete here in Sewanee.  You should be careful to include your notes and information in the things you pack for Spain.  You don’t want to have to start again from scratch without reference books on the road.
