HISTORY OF THE MONASTERY OF SANTA MARIA DI ROSATE IN BERGAMO AND OF ITS FAMOUS AND UNIQUE HOLY CROSS.

The ancient church of Santa Maria di Rosate and the annexed convent of the Clarisse, was located on the square of the same name, in the upper part of the city of Bergamo, on the hill called Rosate and was closed in 1810 and was renowned for its unique Holy Cross. br> The Holy Cross, now at the Basilica of Sant'Alessandro, in the chapel of the Cross, where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed, has a history wrapped in mystery, as it is believed to have appeared by miracle in the monastery during the siege of French troops in the sixteenth century.
The Christ on the cross, has human hair, and the nail that binds him to the cross is only on the right hand while the left is tied to the cross with a ribbon.
