Discover The Sainte Coiffe

The Cathedral of Saint-Etienne or Cahors Cathedral in France is an eleventh century Roman Catholic Cathedral holds a remarkable relic of Christ’s Passion, the Sainte Coiffe. This relic is a headdress or cloth that was used during the burial of Jesus. The Sainte Coiffe is also commonly referred to as the Holy Coif, the Holy Cap, or the Holy Headdress. This relic is rarely shown to the public however in 2019 Pilgrims will have the special honor of seeing the relic in person.

The Cathedral, built by Bishop Gerard de Cardaillac, was consecrated in 1119 by Pope Calixto II. 2019 will mark the Cathedral’s 900th. Starting on April 14, 2019, the Cathedral will exhibit the relic of the Sainte Coiffe prominently at the doorway of the Cathedral so that Pilgrims will be able to view it immediately upon entering. The details of the exhibit are still being finalized however the Cathedral will be open each day from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and the exhibit will run through December 8, 2019.
