The Relics of Saint Marina (photos)


Saint Marina is one of the most beloved saints not only in the East but also in the West, where she is called Margaret. Below is a list of some of the relics of Saint Marina in Greece and elsewhere with photos.

It should be noted that some relics may be listed a number of times, for example Saint Marina's right hand. It may appear that there are multiple right hands listed, but in reality most of these are only portions of the right hand and arm that have been distributed to various places. Of course, we should not neglect the fact that in the Medieval West, relics were given false names of popular saints, and even in the East sometimes a lesser known saint relic was ascribed to a more popular one. The reason for this is because the right hand of Saint Marina was used to strike the devil with a hammer.
