  • A copy of the Mandylion is brought to Rome from Byzantium, to which Pope Sergius consecrates a special altar. This copy is called the 'Veronica’ (from the Latin vera icon—true likeness). Over time, a legend of St Veronica develops around this copy, linking it to the Gospel-derived story of Hemorrhissa, a woman suffering from a haemorrhage and healed by touching Jesus’ robe.
