Este libro ha sido publicado a raíz del ciclo de conferencias “Matter of Faith” -llevado a cabo como complemento de la exposición Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics and Devotion in Medieval Europe que reunió a más de treinta expertos internacionales en este campo para presentar nuevas investigaciones en torno al estudio de los relicarios medievales y  la veneración de las reliquias. El resultado es un estudio interdisciplinario de un tema tan sugerente como controvertido, protagonizado por algunos de los objetos más bellos y emblemáticos de la época.

Este volumen constituye una valiosa herramienta de investigación para los historiadores, historiadores del arte y conservadores, así como para cualquier persona con un interés general sobre este tema tan fascinante.
