Theca with relics of the Blessed Tommaso Bellacci

Oval glass-fronted reliquary theca housing relics of Blessed Tommaso Bellacci. The relics are affixed to a red silk background, surrounded by paperole and twisted silver wirte ornamentation and identified on a paper cedula label in as B. Thomae Bellacci (The Blessed Tommaso Bellacci). On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a faint imprint of an unidentified Roman Catholic Bishop.

Blessed Tommaso Bellacci (†1447) was an Italian Roman Catholic professed member of the Third Order of Saint Francis ​who​ became a religious after turning his life around from one of sin to one of penance and servitude to God​.​ Bellacci travelled across the Middle East and the Italian peninsula to preach and administer to people despite not being an ordained priest.​ ​​His rite of beatification was celebrated in 1771​.​
