Abstract

The collection of 13th-century relics, reliquaries, and liturgical artefacts originating from the St Nicholas priory of Oignies (Belgium) is one of the most complete and intact treasures of its kind. A recent scientific analysis (CROMIOSS) and restauration efforts at the Musée des Arts anciens du Namurois have revived international interest in this collection. These sessions will discuss the Oignies Treasure in all its aspects and explore the context and significance of its artefacts.
