One of the most important features of Campania is presence of a rich religious tradition which is personified by famous martyrs (i.e., San Gennaro in Naples), Saint Andrews and others, whose miraculous relics are kept in cathedrals and crypts. San Gennaro was bishop of Naples in the third century and was beheaded in the persecution of early Christians by Roman Emperor Diocletian, who ordered to kill about 3,500 Christians. The blood of San Gennaro is said to have been collected by a woman named Eusebia shortly after his death. The blood is kept in special ampules and liquifies, which is one of the most famous miracles of the Catholic Church. The miracle has been regularly recorded since 1389.
