In comparison to other European territories, it can be said that the Roman relic of the Veronica of Christ did not enjoy particular popularity with the Crown of Aragon during the last centuries of the Middle Ages. However, the royal promotion of a Veronica of the Virgin Mary by 1400 not only fostered the associated veneration of the Face of Christ, but also produced a series of liturgical objects (Veronicae) that were immediately adopted in most of the cathedrals and major churches of the Aragonian realm.
