Reliquary Cabinet with Relics of Blessed Francesco Lippi & 3 Martyrs: St. Fausta of Cyzicus, St. Generosus of Tivoli & St. Deodatus of Sora

Ca. 1800’s small reliquary cabinet in Baroque style surmounted with gilded palm leaves and containing, behind the front glass panel, substantial first-class ex ossibus (of the bone) relics of the Blessed Francesco Lippi, O.C.O. surrounded by three Christian Martyrs: St. Fausta of Cyzicus, St. Generosus of Tivoli, & St. Deodatus of Sora. The relics are affixed to a red silk background decorated with gilt silver wire ornamentation and silk flowers. They are identified in fancy manuscript cedulae labels and, again, on smaller labels affixed directly to the relics. On the back, the reliquary is secured by a red silk ribbon secured by a seal of red Spanish wax with an imprint of a coat of arms of Fr. Antonio Martini (†1809), Archbishop of Florence (1781-1809). 

The Blessed Francesco Lippi, O.Carm. (†1291) (also known as Blessed Franco of Siena) was a Carmelite Hermit, Mystic, Penitent, well-known for his prophetic gifts. He lived his life as a soldier before suffering the loss of sight at which point his healing led him down the path of repentance and into the Carmelites. Lippi was beatified in 1670 after Pope Clement X approved Lippi's longstanding local 'cultus' (or popular devotion).He experienced visions of Jesus Christ and the Madonna as well as seeing angels and experiencing the temptations of demons. The confirmation of the late Lippi’s ‘cultus’ (or popular devotion) allowed for Pope Clement X to approve his Beatification in 1670.

St. Fausta of Cyzicus (†c.311), was a 4th-century girl from Cyzicus who, at the age of 13, was arrested, tortured, and executed for being a Christian. A pagan priest, Evilasius, who was responsible for torturing and executing her, converted to Christianity after watching her courageous resistance, and he was also martyred for this act. Although Fausta had remained impervious to the initial torture, she and Evilasius perished together in a cauldron of boiling water. They are also venerated in the Eastern Catholic Church along with Maximus, the magistrate who condemned Evilasius. Tradition holds that Maximus repented at the last moment and joined the pair in the cauldron.

St. Generosus was martyred in Tivoli, but no acts of his martyrdom survived. His remains are under the altar in the Tivoli Cathedral and his Feast Day is commemorated on July 17th.

St. Deodatus was martyred in Sora, Italy, but no acts of his martyrdom survived. His Feast Day is commemorated on September 27th.
