If the novelty of Christianity consists in making visible what is invisible, then a question arises for the historian: do believing and consequent seeing produce historically verifiable knowledge? The question originates from the Christian tradition but concerns the essence of faiths. The volume presents four lines of inquiry and some cases to explore: Marian apparitions, the heads of Saints Peter and Paul in the Lateran basilica, miracles in ancient Gnosticism, Islamic circumambulation.
