Reliquary busts like this one for St. Benedict contained remnants of saints’ bodies. According to tradition, St. Benedict died on this day in the mid 6th century. As a result, his feast was celebrated on this day until the institution of the General Roman Calendar which moved his celebration to 11 July to prevent conflict with Lent.
