in specie peregrini que fit in tercia feriae pasce ad uesperas,
procedant .ii. a competenti loco uestiti tunicis solummodo
et cappis, capuciis absconsis ad modum clamidis pilleos
in capitibus habentis et baculos in manibus ferentes et cantent
modica uoce:

[J]esu nostra redempcio, amor et desiderium, Et ceteros uersus.                                                                                                

|Illis hec cantantibus accedat quidam alius 
in similitudinem domini, peram cum longa
palma gestans, bene ad modum
peregrini paratus, pilleum in capite
habens hacla uestitus et tunica,
nudus pedes, latenterque eos
retro cequator eos, finitisque uersibus.
Veniat eis:

Qui sunt hii sermones quos offertis ad inuicem ambulantes et estis tristes, alleluia.



|Alter autem

Peregrini

This early twelfth-century English manuscript illumination [Cambridge, Library of Pembroke College 120, fol. 4v], can show how these monastic representations of the Gospels were enacted, the monks borrowing the clothes of their pilgrim guests for the parts of Christ, Luke and Cleopas.


                           
                          Sculpture, Cloister, Santo Domingo de Silos, Luke with Gospel, Cleopas, Christ as Compostela Pilgrim
