This Neocities website is a primary phase of my PhD dissertation on the topic of relics and relic veneration in Early England. Eventually, this website will host TEI-compliant XML editions of the corpus of relic lists and relic inventories for England, up to ca. 1300. This site also serves to store and organise basic metadata on the relic list corpus. Please see the other pages on this website for more information.
