medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Herewith a link to an earlier 'Saints of the day' for 24. April (including Sts. Mary of Cleophas and Salome; St. Alexander of Lyon; St. Anthimus of Nicomedia; St. Mellitus; St. Wilfrid of York; St. Egbert of Northumbria):

Further to Mary of Cleophas:

In that earlier post's notice of this saint, the second link to a view of the altar of Marie Jacobé and Marie Salomé in the church of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer no longer functions.  Use this instead:
http://tinyurl.com/cu97e2g

In the same notice, the first link to the exterior of views of the church of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer no longer functions.  Use these instead (and disregard the second link):

In the same notice, the link to an interior view of the church of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer also no longer functions.  Use this instead:
http://tinyurl.com/d9g86mg

In the same notice, the link to the first, general view of the Three Marys as depicted on the rood screen in St Helen's, Ranworth no longer functions.  Use this instead:

Further to Salome:

In that earlier post's notice of this saint, replace with this the link to a view of the tiny sarcophagus said to have been Salome's:
http://s3.amazonaws.com/fcassets/assets/websites/1355/129590/page_adscn4449.jpg

In the same notice, the link to a view of the apse fresco in the basilica di Santa Salome in Veroli no longer functions.  Use this instead:
http://tinyurl.com/78fwmqc

In the same notice, add this link to an illustrated page on Veroli's chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angeli:
http://tinyurl.com/2dgofwt

Add this illustrated, Spanish-language account of the originally twelfth-century iglesia de Santa María Salomé (ca. 1140) at Santiago de Compostela, where Salome is venerated as the mother of St. James the Great:

Further to Anthimus of Nicomedia:

A revised and updated selection of visuals for this saint will be found in this post from last September:

Yet further visuals for Anthimus of Nicomedia:

Anthimus as depicted (at right; at left, St. Babylas) in the earlier fourteenth-century frescoes (betw. ca. 1311 and ca. 1322) in the church of St. Nicholas Orphanos in Thessaloniki:

Anthimus as depicted in an earlier fourteenth-century fresco (betw. ca. 1312 and 1321/1322) in a little dome of the monastery church of the Theotokos at Gračanica in, depending upon one's view of the matter, either Serbia's province of Kosovo and Metohija or the Republic of Kosovo:
http://tinyurl.com/3vs7bgj

Anthimus (at left; at right, St. Parthenius of Lampsacus) as depicted in an earlier fourteenth-century fresco (betw. ca. 1312 and 1321/1322) in the chapel of St. Nicholas in the aforesaid monastery church of the Theotokos at Gračanica:

Detail view (Anthimus):

Further to Wilfrid of York:

In that earlier post's notice of this saint, the third link to the views of the crypt of Ripon cathedral no longer functions.

In the same notice, the link at 'The second and third views in this set' no longer brings one (at least not directly) to views of Wilfrid's crypt at Hexham.

In the same notice, the link to the guide to the crypt at Hexham no longer functions.  Use this instead:

In a post of 2011 Gordon Plumb provided links to depictions of Wilfrid in stained glass:

Today (24. April) is also the feast day of:

Our Lady of Bonaria (d. 1st cent.).  The BVM is the patron of a Mercedarian monastery that has existed since 1335 on the elevation of Bonaria south-east of the medieval city of Cagliari but now incorporated within that city's limits.  Today's feast celebrates the arrival at Bonaria of its reputedly miraculous cult statue of the BVM and Christ Child on, according to the legend, 25. April 1370, when the monks discovered it in a large chest that on the previous day had been jettisoned along with all the other cargo by a ship caught in a storm offshore and that had washed up overnight at their site.

The statue, which has undergone various restorations and modifications from the fifteenth century through 2010, is certainly late medieval in origin.  Some views:

Detail views taken during the restoration of 2010:

The site was fortified by Catalans in 1324-1326 during a siege of Cagliari; when it was given to the Mercedarians they took over its chapel dedicated to the Trinity (and to the BVM?).  Now called the Santuario de Santa Maria di Bonaria, most of its buildings are early modern or later.  But this belltower is a repurposing of a defensive structure from the original fort:

TAN: The sanctuary's museum holds a rich collection of ex-votos, mostly with maritime themes.  In addition to the usual paintings there are also ship models (such as one finds in similar sanctuaries at other Mediterranean ports):
