The "Santa Diestra" of St. Stephen

The death of King St. Stephen in 1038 was followed by a period of instability, which made it advisable to transfer his remains to a safe place. At that time his right hand, which had remained incorrupt, was separated from the body. Today the relic of the "Holy Right Hand" is venerated in this reliquary in St. Stephen's Cathedral in the Hungarian capital.
