Based on archival documents, the paper discusses the Reliquary of St Filippo Benizi preserved in Dubrovnik’ s Cathedral Treasury, commissioned by Archbishop of Dubrovnik Giovanni Vincenzo Lucchesini after the miracle that the saint’ s image worked in Lorignano near Todi in 1672, and brought from Rome to Dubrovnik in 1690. The motive behind the execution of the reliquary was the image of St Filippo Benizi placed within the reliquary, which proved miraculous once again upon its arrival to Dubrovnik and encouraged the veneration of the saint from the Servite Order entirely foreign to the city’ s tradition. Lucchesini’ s commission of the reliquary is contextualized among his other commissions, realized mainly as the Prior General of the Servite Order (1670–1678), strongly connected to his promotion of the veneration of St Filippo Benizi, canonized in 1671.
