Description

This text examines the transferral's historical contexts and assesses the tradition's historical authenticity. It also examines photographic reproductions of scenes from two major art works which depict the transferral - the 14th-century marble sculpture of the "Arca di Sant'Agostino" in S. Pietro in Ciel d'Oro, and paintings from an anonymous late 15th-century South German, "Vita Sancti Augustini".
