Professor Dame Marina Warner (Quondam Fellow, All Souls), 'Taking it with you when you go: The case of the flying house of Loreto'. The Santa Casa was one of the greatest pilgrimage sites in the world until it was sacked by Napoleon in 1797. It still enshrines the small stone dwelling from Nazareth where Mary grew up, received the angel Gabriel, and then brought up Jesus. This large and unusual relic was brought to Italy by angels for safe-keeping.
