Relics of saints
The word "saint, or saints" is the word in the King James Bible used to describe believers. The Catholic Church has set up a system of Sainthoods that does not appear in the Bible. --dc
The basic idea of the Greek for this word is "holiness." All Christians are saints in that they are positionally "set apart" to God and are experientially being made increasingly "holy" by the Holy Spirit. --(Ref: Zondervan NIV Study Bible).
With that in mind, finding first class relics of saints is no problem, --but why would you want to? --dc
