Relic Cults and their Liturgies in Medieval Tuscany

Benjamin Brand

  • Engages the comparatively obscure field of medieval sacred music with preeminent scholarship to create a uniquely specialized study of medieval Tuscany
  • Includes in-depth discussion of the sociopolitical context of relic cults
  • Integrates close analyses of the liturgy into a broader consideration of the historical and artistic aspects of medieval relic cults
