Medieval vernicle finger rings in Finland

By Visa Immonen

Fornvannen: Journal of Swedish Antiquarian Research, Vol. 99 (2004)

Abstract: Five Finnish Medieval finger rings of the vernicle type, depicting the face of Christ, and two later rings with a male face are discussed. Dates and find contexts are reviewed. The position of the vernicle in Late Medieval piety, in the cult of Corpus Christi and especially in the devotional life of medieval women is important to contextualize the common interpretation of the vernicle rings as magic charms.
