“Ultreia” is a term commonly associated with the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, particularly in the context of the Way of St. James, a network of pilgrimage routes leading to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The term has its origins in medieval Latin and Old French.
The word “Ultreia” (or “Ultreïa”) is believed to be a contraction of the Latin phrase “Ultreia et Suseia,” which translates to “Go beyond” or “Go further.” It was a salutation and an expression of encouragement used by pilgrims to motivate and uplift each other during their arduous journey to the shrine of St. James.
In the context of the Camino de Santiago, “Ultreia” carries a deeper meaning of pushing forward, moving beyond one’s limits, and overcoming challenges. Pilgrims would call out “Ultreia” to one another as a way of urging each other onward, reminding fellow travelers to persevere and continue their pilgrimage with determination, courage, and a positive spirit.
Today, “Ultreia” continues to be used as a slogan and greeting among modern-day pilgrims walking the Camino. It symbolizes the camaraderie and shared sense of purpose among pilgrims and serves as a powerful reminder of the transformative and introspective nature of the journey. The term encapsulates the essence of the pilgrimage experience, encouraging pilgrims to go beyond the physical journey and explore the inner landscapes of their hearts and souls.
