Reliquaries & Relics
Items directly associated with the events of Christ s life (manger, cross, etc.), or the physical remains of a saint (a bone, hair, a limb, etc.) Traditionally, a martyr s relics are often more prized than the relics of other saints. Also, some saints relics are known for their extraordinary incorruptibility (Human remains do not deteriorate as would normally be expected. For instance a 500 year odl body that appears as though it is still in wake) and so would have high regard. It is important to note thet parts of the saint thea were significant to that saint s life are more prized relics. For instance, King St. Stephen of Hungary s right forearm is especially important because of his status as a ruler. A famous theologian s head may be his most important relic. ( The head of St. Thomas Aquinas was removed by the monks at the Cistercian abbey at Fossanova where he died). If a saint did a lot of traveling then the bones of his feet may be prized. Current Catholic teaching prohibits relics to be divided up into small, unrecognizable parts if they are to be used in liturgy (i.e. as in an altar; see the rubrics listed in Rite Of Dedication of a Church and an Altar).
