Saint James the Less, "the minor", "the little", "the lesser", or "the younger". James the Less is a figure of Early Christianity. He is not to be confused with James the Great ("James, son of Zebedee"). In most opinions he might be the same person with James, son of Alphaeus, but the sources offer no certainty. In the past, the Western church used to identify him with James, "the Lord’s brother" or "the Just", but that is no longer the case.
