Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The development of the Eucharistic cult in medieval cities was connected above all to the Christian ideal of peace and political harmony, expressed in the Eucharistic processions, with visual, symbolic or performative narration of the history of salvation, in which the social body, articulated in its various religious, political and productive components. The project of a Christian Europe, as a unity of diversity, came to a dramatic collapse with the advent of the Reformation, transforming the Eucharistic theater of civic participation into a polemical manifestation of catholicity and into a spectacle of glory.
