Bagnoregio, Italy: Cathedral of Saint Bonaventure

About the Cathedral of Saint Bonaventure (Cattedrale San Bonaventura) in Bagnoregio:

Saint Bonaventure was born in the hill city of Civita di Bagnoregio nearby, and so it is fitting that the only remaining relic of this saint is found here.  His tomb had originally been in Lyon, France but in 1562 that churhc was plundered by the Hugenots and his remains were burned in the public squeare.  At the time he was incorrupt, and his head was reported to be saved, but later disappeared during the French Revolution.

So we know have his only remaining relic….his right arm, preserved here in this church.
