Abstract

In the second half of the thirteenth century, Boniface of Verona wrote a poem in hexameters, the Veronica, describing the story of the holy cloth with the face of Christ. The text is transmitted by a single fifteenth-century manuscript (Paris, Bibliothèque nationale de France, MS Lat. 8229). This contribution, which is the first step towards the complete critical edition of Boniface of Verona’s Veronica, offers an overview of this unknown testimony of the worship of the relic in Rome during the thirteenth century, under the shadow of the papal curia.
