Theology and Liturgy themes

  1. Veronica in liturgical calendars and in the divine office in Italy and in Europe
  2. Veronica in hagiography
  3. The link with the beatific vision and Corpus Domini

    Issues requiring investigation here are the cult of the Veronica including prayers of intercession, the Veronica Office and Mass Proper, as well as the figure of Veronica in hagiography. It would be opportune to verify the relation between devotion reserved specifically for the Veronica and important theological issues in the thirteenth century, such as the spread of the cult of Corpus Domini and the beatific vision of God, as well as the sacramental value of copies of the Veronica around which devotional ceremonies were developed (e.g. Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV in Prague).
