ABSTRACT
Information on the disruption by apophatic bodies of the conventional binary of transcendence and materiality from a section of the book "Apophatic Bodies: Negative Theology, Incarnation and Relationality" is presented. Three movements were fostered by late ancient Christianity from the fourth through the seventh centuries. They are the cult of the saints, the cult of relics, and the production of iconic art and were premised on the belief that the material world is the focal point of spiritual presence.
