medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

1)  On Saturday, December 13, 2008, at 5:48 pm, I wrote concerning the basilica di Sant'Antioco at Sant'Antioco (CI) in Sardinia:
> So-called catacombs beneath the church (view of the entrance; 
> illustrated, Italian-language page; other views):

Some will have observed that the link to the illustrated, Italian-language page on the originally fifth-century burial chamber called Catacombe di Sant'Antioco is missing.  Here it is:

Some views of a tomb said to be the one that in 1615 was identified, on the basis of a late antique inscription that had been placed upon it, as the one containing A.'s relics:

3)  Another saint of the day.  Today (13. December) is also the feast day of:

Judoc (d. 7th cent.).  J. (who has many name forms, incl. English Joyce, French Josse and German Jodok and Jo[b]st) is said in his late eighth- or early ninth-century Vita (BHL 4504) to have been the second son of a Breton king who declined an offer of succession, was a pilgrim in various parts of northern France, and in Picardy was ordained priest and founded a hermitage that in the late eighth or early ninth century would become the now vanished abbey named for him near today's Montreuil-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais).  In about 902 some of its monks, seeking safety from the Northmen, crossed over to England bringing relics of J. which were deposited in the Old Minster at Winchester.  By this time J. was already being venerated at St. Maximinus at Trier and at the abbey of Prüm in the Eifel, whence his cult spread widely in German-speaking lands.

In the early eleventh century J. received expanded Vitae by Isembard of Fleur-sur-Loire (BHL 4505-4510, including a reported Inventio in 977 of relics that had not been transported to England) and by Florentius of Saint-Josse.  In the central and later Middle Ages his cult spread widely in an arc from Brittany across northern France and the Low Countries and across Germany into Switzerland and Austria.

Here's an illustrated, English-language page on an early medieval Islamic textile (now in the Louvre) in which J.'s putative relics at the abbey were wrapped:
