‘Fascinating study…This book constitutes an impressive contribution to our understanding of relics and relic discourse, and offers an important reminder of the reciprocal and interconnected relationship among discourse, text, and materiality in medieval culture.’ — Barbara Zimbalist Journal of Medieval religious Cultures vol 40:02:2014 ‘Relics and Writing is learned, intelligent, and well structures … Malo’s skillful distillation of the patterns of relic discourse should provoke further thought about the ways in which medieval literature patterns itself upon religious objects.’ — Elizabeth Allen Modern Philology vol 112:04:2015 ‘Anyone interested in the general question of how relics signified and functioned will benefit from reading, and pondering along with this thought provoking book… Malo’s book forces us to think more carefully and explicitly about the dynamics that many of us have been taking for granted.’ — Felicie Lifshitz Speculum April 2015
