This contribution aims at investigating historical and religious features of a sanctuary located in Southern Italy, precisely in the rural area of Gargano (northern Apulia), marked by devotional patterns related to animals: the sanctuary of St. Matthew the Apostle. Some of these patterns will be compared and contrasted with those related to another small “rural” sacred place, located in the central zone of the Italian Region of Abruzzi: the sanctuary of St. Dominic of Cocullo.

Abstract

This contribution aims at investigating historical and religious features of a sanctuary located in Southern Italy, precisely in the rural area of Gargano (northern Apulia), marked by devotional patterns related to animals: the sanctuary of St. Matthew the Apostle. Some of these patterns will be compared and contrasted with those related to another small “rural” sacred place, located in the central zone of the Italian Region of Abruzzi: the sanctuary of St. Dominic of Cocullo.
