The hand of St. Stephen

A very special relic, the mummified right hand of St. Stephen, Hungary’s first Christian king who was crowned in 1000. The legend is that his body had been exhumed before he was canonised and that’s when his right hand and arm were found mummified. This relic can be seen today in the St. Stephen’s Basilica.
