Documented theca with first class relics of Saint Joseph of Cupertino, Patron of Pilots and Students

Oval glass-fronted  reliquary theca housing first class ex carne (from the flesh) relics of Saint Joseph of Cupertino. The relics are affixed to a red silk background, surrounded by twisted silver wire ornamentation and identified on an arch shaped cedula label as Ex Carne S. Jos. a Cupertino C. (Of the Flesh of Saint Joseph of Cupertino, Confessor). On the back, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a perfectly preserved imprint of a coat of arms of fr. Antonio Gabriele Severoli (†1824), Bishop of Fano (1787 - 1801). It is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed by Fr. Severoli in 1793. 

Saint Joseph of Cupertino, O.F.M. Conv. (†1663) was an Italian Conventual Franciscan friar who is honored as a Christian mystic and saint. He was said to have been remarkably unclever, but prone to miraculous levitation and intense ecstatic visions that left him gaping. Joseph was beatified in 1753 and canonized in 1767. He is a patron of The City of Osimo, aviation, astronauts, mental handicaps, test taking, students.
