This volume contains sixteen articles by international experts from different disciplines touching on various aspects on medieval and early modern cults of saints from different corners of Europe, with a special focus on Scandinavian saints and their artistic receptions up to modern times. The saints represented different aspects of a Christian world-view forming the basis of communal identities, still present in post-Reformation Europe.

Notions of cultural memory underpin several of the studies in the volume. Moreover, the reader will also find articles concerning the function of saints’ cults, in particular how the material culture of these cults was perceived and experienced by the medieval beholder. The book includes a recording of music from the Middle Ages up to modern times focusing on saints and the notion of sanctity.
