Relic of St. Crispin, wax seal is in place but silk threads have been cut.
As hagiographic tradition testifies, Crispinus and his brother Crispinianus were two young Christians sent from Rome to the Gaul as missionaries. To support themselves, they took up the trade of shoemaking, alternating this activity with spreading the Gospel. Tortured and killed during the anti-Christian persecutions ordered by Maximian (250-310), they became the patron saints of cobblers.
