Faithful Fakes - House of European History virtual tour series

In this episode, we will ask ourselves a question how people from the past tried to navigate the world of unfalsifiable constructs of religious beliefs? How would they establish what was true for them? For centuries, the political and the religious spheres have bolstered each other’s claim to power and legitimacy. Each era fakes what it values most - thus prominent fakes and forgeries in the Medieval Europe carried a strong religious component.
