Reliquary theca with relics of Saint Ubald of Gubbio, Protector Against Demonic Possession

Oval glass-fronted theca housing substantial relic of Saint Ubaldo. The relic is  affixed to a cloth background and identified in Latin on a paper cedula label as S. Ubaldi Ep. Eug. (St. Ubaldo, Bishop of Gubbio).  On the back, the theca is secured with a red wax seal with a faint imprint of an unidentified Roman Catholic Bishop. 

Saint Ubald (Ubaldo) of Gubbio (†1160) was a medieval bishop of Gubbio, in Umbria, today venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. Numerous miracles were attributed to him during his life and after his death. Pope Celestine III canonized him in 1192. His power, as we read in the Office for his feast, is chiefly manifested over the evil spirits, and the faithful are instructed to have recourse to him "contra omnes diabolicas nequitias" (against all the devil's assaults).  He is the Holy Patron of Gubbio, Italy; against demonic possession; migraine, neuralgia, sick children; autistics; and people with obsessive compulsive disorder . His feast is commemorated on May 16th.
