Treasures of Heaven
Members' price *
A magnificent study of the beautifully crafted medieval reliquaries that enshrined holy relics, and their wider historical, cultural, political and religious context.
Drawing on three major museum holdings, as well as featuring iconic pieces from other international public and private collections, Treasures of Heaven looks at the phenomenon of holy relics in the Middle Ages. In the first major English language publication on the subject, leading scholars from Europe and North America trace the history and development of the cult of relics, from its beginnings in late Roman funerary practices to its rise in both the Byzantine East and the West.
