St. Rumbolds Cathedral Relics 4

10 June 2007

Relics in the Mechelen cathedral.

This cathedral had a large collection of relics. As you may recall, first class relics are pieces of dead saints. In this case, they appear to be bone fragments.

I can't make out who is in this reliquary (display case) because of the germanic lettering and also because it seems to be in Flemish.
