THE HOLY SCALLOP

The scallop shell is known as the emblem of the crusaders of the Order of St. James (or St. Jacques), one of Jesus’ 12 apostles. There is a legend that connects the two, being that he once saved a knight covered in scallops from drowning. The variation of that tale is that while his remains were being transported from Jerusalem to Spain, a knight’s horse fell into the water, emerging covered in scallops.

The scallop then became the symbol of St. James, and Medieval Christians would often have a scallop shell symbol on their clothing when they made the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, to the shrine of St. James.
