Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the origin of "Veronica Corbie". The Holy Face of Corbie is unfortunately no longer available. It was stolen from the church in 1970. There are, however, photographs, preserved in the Archives of Historical Monuments, and some old postcards, plus a lithograph by Charles Hugot, published in 1846. These documents have the merit of giving an image more or less faithful and allow, in addition, cherishing the hope that one day it may reappear work and can be identified. However, unlike most other devotional images of Veronica, Veronica Corbie, like the Holy Face inserted in the Mazarine Hours and "Veronica gold" of Prague, was distinguished both by its dimensions and an emotional attachment to replicate as closely as the features of his Roman model. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Roman model; Holy Face; Veronica Corbie
