The top scene on this page illustrates a procession accompanying the transfer of the saints' bodies from their original burial site to a new location, called a translation. This event was significant because it publicly proclaimed the sanctity and legitimacy of the relics of Saints Aimo and Vermondo. The devotees who are gathered around the tomb in the lower scene illustrate the belief that the faithful who came into close contact with the relics of the saints could benefit from their power.
