The relics of the True Cross are fragments taken from the wood of the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified. These sacred artifacts hold a significant place in Christianity, symbolizing crucifixion and redemption. According to tradition, the cross was discovered by Saint Helena, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, in the 4th century, during a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The relics of the True Cross have been scattered throughout many churches and institutions throughout the Christian world over the centuries. Elaborate reliquaries and sumptuous liturgical objects were created to house these sacred fragments. Believers view these relics as objects of veneration, believing in their spiritual power and ability to bring about miracles.
