Subject:        Iago and Santiago Matamoros
 
SHAKSPEReans,
 
My first effort to communicate by e-mail--a query:
 
A couple of months ago I saw a small equestrian statuette, at the *Seeds of
Change* exhibit in the Smithsonian, that made me wonder whether there
might be a story to tell about Iago's name.  The statuette was of St. James,
the tutelary saint of Spain of course, and was called *Santiago
Matamoros*--St. James the Moor killer (another statuette, called
*Santiago Mataindios* stood next to it to justify its inclusion in the
exhibit).  Does anyone know of a connection between Iago and
Santiago?
 
Thanks,
Al Cacicedo (
