Relics are the bodily remains of a holy person, or other material, such as clothing or oil, sanctified by contact with this person or this person's remains. The supernatural powers attributed to holy persons are believed to adhere to their relics. The faithful can experience the effect of these powers by seeing and touching relics, which are often believed to work miracles. Relics often are kept in costly containers or reliquaries.
