Relics were everywhere in medieval society. Saintly morsels such as bones, hair, teeth, blood, milk, and clothes, and items like the Crown of Thorns were thought to bring the believer closer to the saint, who might intercede with God on his or her behalf. This book presents an illustrated exploration of 1000 years of holy relics across Europe.

Charles Freeman is a specialist on the ancient world and its legacy. He is the author of numerous books, including A New History of Early Christianity and the bestseller The Closing of the Western Mind.
