Presentation

By Amanda Clare Murphy

Veronica Conference is a virtual meeting place for scholars working on the Roman Veronica, as a figure in art and iconography, literature, history, theology and the liturgy.

It was built for the interdisciplinary conference The European Fortune of the Roman Veronica in the Middle Ages held at Magdalene College, Cambridge in May 2016. The Veronica Conference site presents, in four dedicated sections, the research discussed in Cambridge, and aims to stimulate further research on the questions left open after the conference, with a  view to a second conference on the fortune of the Veronica up to modern times.

It takes its origin from Veronica Route, the open-ended online catalogue begun in 2010, which collects reproductions of the medieval relic called the Veronica, organising them chronologically and geographically, and linking them to live google earth maps.
