Multireliquary centered around the Column of Flagellation and the Sepulcher of the Virgin Mary, with relics of Apostles and important Saints

Silver-washed brass reliquary theca, comprising first class, ex ossibus relics of Saints and Apostles Peter and Paul, Italian saint and mystic Saint Nicholas Tolentino known as the Patron of Holy Souls, Saint Philip Neri, known as the Apostle of Rome, Saint Lucy young Christian martyr, patron of the blind, Saint Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church, and Spanish Saint Paschal Baylon patron saint of Eucharistic congresses and Eucharistic associations, dispersed around relics of the Column of Flagellation of Jesus Christ, and the Sepulcher (Empty Tomb) of the Theotokos.

The relics are mounted against a red background, and identified with manuscript cedulae. The theca is sealed with a red Spanish wax was seal and three sets (of probably four) of double red cords of red silk. The seal shows signs of heat, but the original episcopal seal is largely visible.
