Collection of Catholic Reliquaries with Paper Authentics

The certification document that accompanies a sealed reliquary is often times referred to as the authentics.  On the top of the document is the name and position (and sometimes but not always a coat of arms) of the Roman Catholic ecclesiastic official who has authenticated the relic(s). This could be the Postulator General of the religious order, the Vicar General of the Roman Curia, a local Archbishop / Bishop or their vicars.

The body of copy that is usually written in Latin with the variation of the following text:

To all and each who will inspect our [document] we make a sure pact and attest, just as we have for many presented sacred relics, that we recognize them as picked out from authentic places, with legitimate documentation, and confirmed by seal; from these [relics] we have removed a [description of the relic], which in reverence we have placed in a silver theca, oval in shape, guarded by a single pane of glass [and] bound on the back by a cord of true silk, red in color, secured by the impression of our seal in red Spanish wax. We have given said Holy Relic as a gift with the permission to keep it among yourselves, to give it on to others, and to exhibit publicly in whatever church, oratory, or chapel for the adoration of the Faithful, and for the greater glory of God, Greatest and Best, and the veneration and worship of His Saints. 

The document is a public acclamation as to the authenticity of the relic, of which a high-ranking ecclesiastic official has signed his name. Typed or hand-written into the blank areas is the name of the saint and abbreviation of the cause of their sainthood, as well as any distinction of honor that the Catholic Church might have placed on them posthumously. There is also a description of the relic itself, and a description of a theca or a reliquary that it is housed in. On the bottom of the authentic is the date of issuance, the seal of the office, and the signature of the authenticator.

On the back of the theca, there is a seal of red Spanish wax. The relic itself is held in place in the theca by threads that cross over it. The threads are fed through the walls of the theca on opposing sides and it is sealed shut with a wax seal bearing the imprint with an insignia of issuing religious authority. This seal and the threads should under no circumstances be broken because they protect the integrity and validity of the authentication.

Rare documented touch relic of the Holy Lance of Jesus Christ - the Spear of Destiny

Incredibly rare touch relic made from the silver object that touched the most powerful and mysterious Passion relic - The Holy Spear of Jesus also known as the True LanceThe reliquary is affixed to the original  authentics document dated 1758 and issued and hand-signed by Fr. Nicola Manciforte (†1762), Bishop of Ancona. 

The document written in Latin translates as:

"...that this silver tip of a Lance, tied to this [letter] with a ribbon of red color, and secured with a small Seal of ours impressed in Spanish Wax, touched the Very Sacred Point of the Lance with which the Side of the Savior was pierced while he was hanging on the Cross; that it exists amongst the rest of the quite famous Relics, by the possession of which our Church was distinguished as the Cathedral of St. Cyriacus; and that it rouses and fosters the piety of the Faithful wondrously well, and draws them to itself...."

The Holy Spear is also known as the Holy Lance is the name of the very spear that had pierced Christ’s side when he hanged on the cross. The first person to refer to this as the Holy Spear was pilgrim Antoninus of Piacenza in 570 AD. While describing the holy places of Jerusalem, he said that in the Basilica of Mount Zion, there was the crown of thorns which Our Lord was crowned and the spear which was used to strike Him in the side. It was rediscovered by the European army of the First Crusade in the city of Antioch on June 15th, 1098, but eventually ended up in the treasury of Constantinople. It is documented, that the holy relic of the True Lance passed through Ancona (an Italian city on the Adriatic side of the Peninsula), in 1492 on its way from Bayezid II the Turkish Sultan (whose father obtained it in 1451 during the conquest of Constantinople) to Pope Innocent VIII by the hand of Pierre d'Abusson, Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes. The Pope placed it the Treasury of the old St. Peter's Basilica in Rome with the volto santo where it is held in great veneration. It is now in one of the great piers of the present St. Peter's Cathedral and in front of it, over the image of Longinus is inscribed "The Spear of Longinus, which Innocent VIII, the Chief Pointif received from Bayezid Sultan of the Turks; Urban VIII transferred it to a decorated shrine rasing an image and erecting the shrine beneath." (see for more information: Relics from the Crucifixion: Where They Went and How They Got There. By J. Charles Wall.)

Since there are no records of the Cathedral of Ancona retaining a part of the True Lance when it was passing through the town on its way to Rome, it is believed that the offered relic was obtained by melting a larger silver object that touched the tip of the True Lance in 1492. A number of analogous documented reliquaries are known, but their number is extremely small and they are in very high demand because of the impossibility of making new touch relics from the True Lance held in the Vatican after it was transferred to the pier of St. Peter's basilica in the 17th century.
