A GAZETTEER OF RELICS
AND MIRACULOUS IMAGES

The following lists relics and miraculous images in a way to be of more convenience to those interested in visiting them. No attempt has been made to verify the miracles accounted or the historical truth of the relics, but what they have in common is that they are all venerated by individuals who believe them to truly be a link to the saints and to God. Unless otherwise noted, all of these saints are Roman Catholic saints and their relics are enshrined in Roman Catholic Churches, but some Orthodox saints, as well as the uncanonised martyr Oscar Romero, are included as well. These are arranged alphabetically by location and in decreasing size of that location (for example country, state, county, city), but churches are listed alphabetically by the saint to which they are dedicated, not by the church's official name. Where appropriate, when certain geographical designations are unknown, question marks have been used. Some listings are incomplete; these can be found on the Incomplete Listings Gazetteer Page. Additions or corrections to this list may be e-mailed to mabeherec@hotmail.com.
