Мощевик с мощами Святых Целителей Космы и Дамиана

Oval glass-fronted brass reliquary theca housing relics of two Unmercenary healers: Saints Cosmas and Damian. The significant first-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relics are affixed to a red silk background and identified on a paper cedulae labels in as S. Cosmae Mart. / S Damiani Mar. On the back, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a clear imprint of a coat of arms of Fr. Giovanni Francesco Capelletti (†1831), Bishop of Ascoli Piceno (1806-1831). The theca comes in the original leather-bound case of issue. 

Saints Cosmas and Damian († c. ad 287) were twin brothers, physicians, and early Christian martyrs suffered martyrdom in Syria during the persecution of Emperor Diocletian. They were venerated as early as the 4th century, when churches dedicated to them were established at Jerusalem, in Egypt, and in Mesopotamia. They are Holy Patrons of surgeons, physicians, dentists, protectors of children, barbers, pharmacists, veterinarians, orphanages, day-care centers, confectioners, children in the house, against hernia, and against the plague.
