A total of 370 registered relics or earthly remains of as many as 250 saints are kept in the parish church of St. Blaise in Vodnjan. An indisputable scientific explanation of their perfect preservation over the years has not yet been found; it is assumed that the body can remain preserved for so long under certain circumstances: at low temperatures, if death occurred due to arsenic poisoning, or if the body is buried in soil rich in iron and tannin. St. Leon Bembo, St. John Olini and St. Nicolosa Bursa were canonized by the Facts, and after it was proved that they were responsible for numerous healings.
