The Beginnings of the Cult of Relics

Robert Wiśniewski

  • Investigates how Christians began to believe in power of relics and shows how the phenomenon crossed cultural frontiers within late-antique Christendom
  • Considers how they sought to reveal hidden knowledge at the tombs of saints and why they buried the death close to them
  • Offers a careful reassessment of an important phenomenon, focused on relics, not the cult of saints in general
