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 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.
Com’era la Veronica?
In quel tempo che molta gente va per vedere
quella imagine benedetta la quale Gesù Cristo lasciò a noi
per esempio della sua bellissima figura.Dante
Duw Ei hun oedd ŵr du hael,
A du fydd dragywydd dro
Y Fernagl a fu arno.G. Glyn
Considering the masses of pilgrims who came to see the image and the innumerable copies of it, it is perhaps surprising that we do not know what the Veronica actually looked like.A.Sturgis
