New Arrival
Reliquary theca with relics of St. Paul, the Prince of Apostles

Round glass-fronted brass reliquary theca housing the first-class relic of Apostle Saint Paul. The relic is centered on a red silk background surrounded by gilt silver wire ornamentation and identified on a typographic cedula label as S. Pauli Apos. (Saint Paul, Apostle). On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured by a perfectly preserved seal of red Spanish wax with a clear imprint of an unidentified Roman Catholic Bishop.

Saint Paul († AD 67), was an Apostle who taught the gospel of Christ to the first century world and is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age founding several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. The Roman Martyrology assigns 29 June as the feast day of both Apostles Peter and Paul.
