AbstractThis panel focusses on lists of relics written on different liturgical objects (such as reliquaries and breviaries/liturgical texts), with the aim of showing how through both their materiality and textual content, these lists were used as a powerful device for capturing, making manifest and actualizing the presence of the divine on earth.
