Abstract

This interdisciplinary session deals with the publicity of emotion in late medieval worship of relics. It concentrates on the case of the Heiltumsbuch at Hall in Tyrol. In its precious woodcuts, this manuscript illustrates the collection’s history, the presentation of the relics to the numerous pilgrims, and the reliquaries that were in use for this purpose. What is the value of the Heiltumsbuch at Hall in comparison to other, similar books of relics? And what can it tell us about the emotions of the noble laymen and simple pilgrims towards the holy relics on the eve of the Reformation? The speakers will approach these questions from three different points of view.
