 Art Bulletin, The: Art imitates architecture: the Saint Philip reliquary in Renaissance Florence
Unlike the Saint Zenobius head reliquary, which is a so-called speaking, or body-part, reliquary that reflects the type of relic it contains, the arm of Saint Philip is housed in an elongated ostensorium, a monstrance reliquary that shelters the precious relic in a glass, crystal, and gilded silver architectural frame.

The arm of Saint Philip boasted an especially illustrious provenance in that it had belonged to Maria Komnenos, niece of the Byzantine emperor Manuel I and widow of the king of Jerusalem and Cyprus.
