Convent mystery Quest for a lost relic of the Holy Cross

Following a lead from an old document, archaeologists at the Benedictine Convent of St John in Müstair started looking for a thorn from the Crown of Thorns and a splinter from the Holy Cross. Instead they discovered a very different relic and the quest took another direction.
