Localizing the church treasure: wanderings of the Codex Eyckensis
The Codex Eyckensis is part of the church treasure from which a part first belonged to the Abbey of Aldeneik. The Codex is one of the core artifacts, along with the relics of Saint Harlindis and Relindis and the Anglo-Saxon textiles.
After its manufacture, probably in the abbey of Echternach, the Codex was handed over by Saint Willibrord to Harlindis and Relindis in the mid-8th-century. From then, the Codex stayed at the abbey of Aldeneik for eight centuries.
