Reliquary theca with relics of Saint Angela de Merici, Foundress of the Ursulines Order

Oval glass-fronted silver theca housing ex ossibus (of the bone) relic of Saint Angela de Merici. The relic is affixed to a gold silk background surrounded by gilt paperolle and silver wire ornamentation and identified on a manuscript cedula label as Osso / S Ang. Mer. ([from the] bone of St. Angela Merici). On the back,  under a protective cap, the theca is secured by a seal of red Spanish wax with a faint imprint of a coat of arms of a Roman Catholic Bishop.

Saint Angela de Merici (†1540) was an Italian religious educator, who is honored as a saint by the Catholic Church. She founded the Company of St. Ursula in 1535 in Brescia, in which women dedicated their lives to the service of the Church through the education of girls. From this organization later sprang the monastic Order of Ursulines, whose nuns established places of prayer and learning throughout Europe and, later, worldwide, most notably in North America. She is a holy patron of sickness, handicapped people, educators, and the loss of parents. Her feast day is commemorated on January 27.
