Documented theca with relics of St Veronica Giuliani

Oval silvered brass glass-fronted theca housing rare pre-cononization first class ex ossibus (of the bone) relics of Saint Veronica Giuliani. The relic is  affixed to a red silk background, surrounded by twisted wire and titled on a paper typographic cedula label as Ex Ossibus / B. Veronicae Ju,  On the back, the theca is secured by a seal of red wax with imprint of a coat of arms of Fr. Stefano Bonsignore († 1826), Bishop of Faenza, Italy (1807-1826). The theca is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and hand signed by Bishop Bonsignore in 1808.

Saint Veronica Giuliani, O.S.C. Cap., (Veronica de Julianis) (†1727) was an Italian Capuchin Poor Clares nun and mystic. After Veronica's death a figure of the Cross was supposedly found impressed upon her heart, and her body has been noted as being incorrupt. She was beatified by Pope Pius VII ​in 1804, and was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI ​in 1839. She is usually represented in art crowned with thorns and embracing the Cross. St. Veronica's "rebirth" in Lebanon began with the devotion of a Lebanese religious, Brother Emmanuel, who came upon her writings in 1994 while serving at a monastery in Deir al-Zour, Syria.
