Saint James the Greater, the son of Zebedee (Hebrew:יַעֲקֹב Yaʿqob, Greek: Ἰάκωβος; died 44 AD) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and traditionally considered the first apostle to be martyred. He was a son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle. He is also called James the Greater or James the Great to distinguish him from James, son of Alphaeus and James the Just. James the Greater is the patron saint of Spain, and as such is often identified as Santiago. His feast day is observed in the church calendar on July 25th and will be observed in Seibels Chapel at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral tomorrow at Morning Prayer at 8:00 a.m. with appropriate solemnities.
