Мощевик с мощами святых Космы и Дамиана, врачевателей и чудотворцев

18th-century angel-form reliquary made of painted and gilded wood with front glass panel housing significant first-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relics of two Unmercenary healers: Saints Cosmas and Damian. The relics are affixed to a red silk background and identified on paper cedulae labels as S. Cosmae Mart. / S Damiani Mart. (Saint Cosmas Martyr / Saint Damian Martyr). On the back, the reliquary is protected by a crisscrossed silk ribbon held in place by four seals of red Spanish wax with clear imprints of a coat of arms of an unidentified Catholic Bishop. The reliquary has damage on the left side where the arm is partially missing. 

Saints Cosmas and Damian († c. ad 287) were twin brothers, physicians, and early Christian martyrs who 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.
