In 1993 Italica Press began publishing the five books of the Codex Calixtinus in English translation. The seminal book in this project, William Melczer’s translation of Book 5, The Pilgrim’s Guide, was the first translation of this fundamental text and has become the standard for scholars and others interested in the route to Compostela.

In 2019, thanks to the commitment and skill of five scholars, editors and translators, the Compostela Project will be completed with the publication of all five books:
