The Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem (Basilica di Santa Croce in Gerusalemme) is a Roman Catholic basilica and titular church in Rome, Italy, considered one of the seven pilgrimage churches of Rome. According to Christian tradition, the basilica was consecrated around 325 to house the relics of the Passion of Jesus Christ brought to Rome from the Holy Land by Empress Helena. Several famous relics are preserved in the Cappella delle Reliquie of the basilica, including a significant part of the Titulus Crucis, two holy thorns from the crown of thorns, a frangment (the tip) of the holy nail, the index finger of Saint Thomas and three relics from the wood of the true cross.
