Black Virgin
   A number of churches where there is a statue of the Black Virgin have been the object of pilgrimages by Gypsies. In 1471 a Gypsy chief, Duke Paul of Egypt, went to visit the statue of the Black Virgin of Guadalupe at Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Some scholars believe that the Gypsies see in the Black Virgin a reminder of the Indian goddess Kali.
