St. Veronica depicted on a pilgrim badge
This brass pilgrim badge, dating to the 15th century, depicts St. Veronica holding out the Vernicle, the image of Christ's face that was miraculously imprinted on a cloth that St. Veronica gave to Christ on his way to Calvary. This badge is thought to have been made in Rome, where the Vernicle is traditionally venerated. It was found in Amien, France.
