Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Inside the Cathedral-Sanctuary of Foggia the believers venerate the Iconavetere, an old icon hidden by seven veils that, according to the tales of the inventio, have been wrapping it since
its finding during the 11th century. The restoration of 1980 induced to cut some elements of the hagiographic legend: the icon, venerated at the beginning without veils, suffered a trauma
during the 16th century that prejudiced its public exhibition. The devotees decided to keep it like a relic and expose it to the public veneration covered by veils. Only after the Tridentine
Council and for localism, the legend of the miraculous finding of Iconavetere was composed of many hagiographic topoi common to the legends of foundation of sanctuaries.
