Popis This book is dedicated to a wide network of cultural transfers woven by the Bishop Ambrose of Milan (and its successors) between the city of Milan and the Christian West. Generated by donations of relics, multiplied from the holy remains preserved in Milan, these cultural transfers consist mainly in the dissemination of architectural and figurative models. The basis for this book consists of three monuments where the presence of Milanese relics is documented or highly probable: the Concilium Sanctorum of Aosta, the Baptist of Albenga and the catacomb of Saint-Sévere in Naples. Each of these monuments seems to reformulate and reinterpret famous Milanese models. The relics thus obviously serve as "vectors of passage" to images and ideas. Moreover, this phenomenon opens up perspectives towards a more global reflection on the construction of identity through the cult of saints and its artistic manifestations between the 4th and 5th centuries. This book, however, also allows us to reflect on the cultural, ecclesiastical and political role played by the city of Milan, often overshadowed by Rome in the scientific literature, during this crucial period of transition between Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.
