Relics, during the Renaissance, were objects of high spiritual, religious, or sentimental value. We’re curious: of all the things that make up your day, what are your relics? If you lived during the Renaissance, you’d say the fragments of saints displayed in Fra Angelico’s reliquaries. But today, in the 21st century, your answer could be anything from sea shells to rings! Tell us about your relics down below with #WhatsYourRelic and be sure to visit our Fra Angelico: Heaven on Earth exhibition!
