Abstract

The reliquaries determine trajectories in the history of the vision whose implications today attract art historians and artists as never before. «Frames» for an excess content; "External" which for their own function destroy the boundaries between inside and outside, here and beyond, are "forms of representation" and prepare the viewer for the power of the only incorruptible "remains" of the sublunary world, without necessarily show them. Thus, the "reliquary effect" (C. Hahn, 2017) is perhaps the most effective device on which to measure the shifts of that threshold between human and divine, visible and invisible, which, for Krysztof Pomian, have determined the history of collecting as a phenomenon consubstantial with the history of humanity. And still define the terms of our own survival.
