St James the Minor
by Peter Paul Rubens

This 1612 painting by Rubens is now in Museo del Prado, Madrid. James the Minor is identified by his attribute: a fuller's hammer. Legend has it that James was killed with his own tool.

James, the son of Alphaeus, is rarely mentioned in the New Testament and is labelled "the minor", "the little", "the lesser", or "the younger" to distinguish him from James, son of Zebedee (James the Greater).
