Two of Christ's apostles were named James. Traditionally considered the first apostle to be martyred, James the Great was the son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle. He is referred to as James the Great to distinguish him from James, son of Alphaeus, who is known as James the Less. James the Great is the patron saint of Spaniards, and as such is often identified as Santiago.
