Reliquary theca with relics of Blessed Conrad of Ascoli

Round silver glass-fronted reliquary theca dating to 1920's housing first class ex carne (from the flesh) relics of Blessed Conrad of Ascoli. The relics are affixed to a red silk background and identified on a typographic cedula as B. Conradi C. (Blessed Conrad, 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.

Blessed Conrad of Ascoli (†1289) was an Italian Friar Minor and missionary who made penance the predominating element of his life and had a great devotion to the Holy Trinity. He was beatified by pope Pius VI and is feast day is celebrated on April 19.
