Spain finds precious antique book

Police in northern Spain have recovered one of the country’s great cultural treasures – a 12th-Century religious manuscript stolen a year ago.  The richly decorated book is considered the first guide for those following the ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago. Christians believe the Santiago de Compostela cathedral to be the burial place of St James the Greater, one of Jesus’s apostles.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/em/fr/-/news/world-europe-18720178
