The cathedral at Naples contains a vial of dried blood, allegedly that of St. Januarius. Eighteen times a year, during certain religious festivals of the Roman Catholic church, the relic is displayed. At these times, the blood is said to liquefy, and this is considered a miracle by believers in the Roman Catholic church.
