AbstractIn the city center of Carrión de los Condes, the parish church of Santiago faces out to the plaza mayor, once a bustling medieval market. A commanding Christ in Majesty and apostolate dominate the church’s screen façade. Below the large, imposing heavenly court, a band of small stone townspeople encircles the doorway, each naturalistically rendered and fully engaged in a quotidian task or action. This article considers Santiago’s carved archivolt within the context of the changing fabric of the city. At the time of Santiago’s decoration, Carrión was undergoing considerable economic, social, and physical transformations. A collection of miracles written at a local Carrionese monastery exemplifies the city’s shifting social structure. Santiago’s façade—situating the inhabitants of the archivolt between Christ in Majesty above and damnation pictured below—visualizes regular citizens within a program of salvation, targeting an emerging spirituality focused on the common lay person.
