 About the Book 

The Medieval Cult of Saints: Formations and Transformations explores the political economy and visual topography of the cult of saints in Medieval Europe. Abou-El-Haj examines a spectrum of cultural practices using more than thirty picture cycles of saints lives, in a range of media, published together for the first time. She argues that repeated and emphasized subjects gave visual expression to renewal, expansion, and competition among cults, whether displayed in private or in public spaces.
