Reliquary theca with relics of Saint Elzéar of Sabran, T.O.S.F.

Round silver glass-fronted reliquary theca dating to 1920's housing first class ex ossibus (from the bone) relics of Saint Elzéar of Sabran, T.O.S.F. The relics are affixed to a red silk background and identified on a typographic cedula as S. Elzearii C. (Saint Elzéar, Confessor). On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a hardly visible imprint of a coat of arms of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin sealed by Fr. Anthony M. Santarelli, Postulator General of the Order in 1920's responsible for a cause for beatification and canonization through the judicial processes required by the Roman Catholic Church.

Saint Elzéar of Sabran, T.O.S.F., Baron of Ansouis, Count of Ariano, (†1323) was a tertiary of the Franciscan Order as well as a ruler, diplomat and military leader in France. He was canonized by Pope Gregory XI about 1371 and his  liturgical feast day is celebrated by the Franciscan Third Order on 26 September.
