Reconquest Episode 35: Old Clothes and Dead Men’s Bones (on Relics) Guest: Charles Coulombe

In the second segment of this episode I interview Charles Coulombe, historian and author, on the subject of holy relics. The first segment is a brief apologetic for the custom of venerating relics as it is practiced in the Catholic Church (and the Eastern Orthodox communions, too).

For links to articles on the subject, as well as the website of an organization that promotes relics, please go to the the show details page at
