Reliquary theca with a relic of the Blessed Andrea Dotti, Italian Servite preacher

Oval silver glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class relic of the Blessed Andrea Dotti. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground with paperolle and silver wire ornamentation and identified in Latin on a manuscript cedula label as B. Andrea Dotti Conf. (the Blessed Andrea Dotti, Confessor).  On the back, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of Fr. Giovanni Luca Solari, Bishop of Brugnato, Italy (p. 1792-1810).

Blessed Andrea Dotti (†1315) was an Italian Servite whose zeal manifested itself principally in preaching and penance. He filled various position of honour in the Order and by his charity and zeal won over to the Order a large number of hermits living at Vallucola. Many visions were vouchsafed him, and he worked a great many authenticated miracles. After long years of preaching, he retired into a hermitage and renewed his penances, and died there. He was buried in a church of his native town. Pope Pius VII authorized his cult on 29 November 1806. His feast day is September 3.
