Housed in the crypt of the cathedral of Gerace, in the chapel of St. Joseph, the diocesan museum preserves, despite the many depredations, many valuable works from both the cathedral and from other churches in Gerace


N the crypt of the cathedral of Gerace, in the chapel of St. Joseph is home to the Diocesan Museum. Despite the numerous depredations, which have deprived the church many of its art treasures, here it is still possible to admire works from the treasury of the cathedral and other churches in those Gerace (those of St. Martin, St. Anne's of Caramel and the Sacred Heart). Are part of the treasure, but they are still exposed, even precious vestments (piano and copes of silk rolled gold of great value) and numerous scrolls. Among the most valuable ancient pieces cross reliquary, perhaps dating from the twelfth century, two-arm in gold foil, of Eastern origin, a pyx copper and silver in 1607, a statue of the Assumption in silver-size, Neapolitan opera of the eighteenth century, a pastoral and a fine eighteenth-century silver monstrance with semi-precious stones, finely decorated with depictions of the Eucharist, a silver goblet of 1855, eleven choral parchment written in Latin in the late fifteenth century, attesting to the transition greek to the Latin rite, a great map silver commissioned in 1759 by the pastor of St. George.
