Hi everyone,

I'm on the mailing list of NewYorkCarver.com, which every week or so sends a
list (by subject) of medieval websites. Everything from torture to medieval
gardening. It's a great plethora (sp?) of information, so I thought I'd let
you all know about it.

> Dear Sophie,

> According to my book "Relics" by Joan Carroll Cruz, c. 1984 (an EXCELLENT
> book), it says: (verbatim, I scanned it in)
>
> A CLOTH believed to have served as the Baby Jesus' swaddling gar­ment is
> kept in a unique reliquary in the shrine that Charlemagne built called Aix
> La Chapelle in Aachen, Germany.
> The city of Aachen was made the capital of the empire by Charlemagne and
it
> remained the capital of the Holy Roman Empire un­til the middle of the
16th
> century. Thirty-seven German emperors were crowned there. When Charlemagne
> built the cathedral, he took pride in securing for it many important
relics
> from the Holy Land and Rome. One of the most valued o£ these was the cloth
> believed to have been worn by the Infant Jesus.
> The golden reliquary, whose hollow encloses the relic, depicts the
> Presentation in the Temple. Called the Reliquary Shrine for the Arm of St.
> Simeon, the shrine was built to house the bone of the saint, but ac­tually
> enshrines the Holy Cloth. On one side of the small short-legged,
gem-studded
> table is a golden figure of the Blessed Mother with her out­stretched
hands
> holding the two doves of the temple offering. On the opposite end is the
> golden figure of Simeon with his outstretched arms holding a figure of the
> Infant Jesus.
> The relics in the cathedral are carefully guarded and were seldom ex­posed
> to public veneration before the 14th century. Since then they have been
> shown on an average of once every seven years, when great pil­grimages
flock
> to Aachen to venerate them.
