In Ebersberg in Germany, the skull cap was used by order brothers to sip wine.
Saint Sebastian (died c. 288 AD) was an early Christian saint and martyr. According to traditional belief, he was killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian’s persecution of Christians.
Since I have published more than 100 articles, exposing the worship on bones, skulls and corpses in the Roman Catholic Church, I felt the relics of “Saint Sebastian” is worth some attention.
Roman Catholic websites admit that the skull of the saint was removed from the body, and sent to a church in Germany.
Nearly 80 years after his death, around 367, his remains were moved to a basilica in Rome, built by Pope Damasus I. His body, or at least some relics from his body were reportedly removed and shared with a community of monks in France. His cranium was sent to a German monastery where it was placed in a special silver case in 934. The relic remains in its case today in a special reliquary in Ebersberg.
A skull can be used for multiple purposes, adoration, veneration and worship. But the German brothers of the Order of Saint Sebastian found a spectacular way of use. The skull cap was used during parties, to sip some good wine.
Sebastian’s cranium was brought to the town of Ebersberg (Germany) in 934. A Benedictine abbey was founded there and became one of the most important pilgrimage sites in southern Germany. It is said the silver-encased cranium was used as a cup in which to present wine to the faithful during the feast of Saint Sebastian.

The German Magazine “Mercus” recorded in 2009 a drama related to the skull. The order brothers in Ebersberg got furious when a surgeon cut a fragment of their “Holy Skull”, and wanted to gift it to a Church in Stuttgart.
In a silver bust rests in the Ebersberg parish church a precious relic: the skull of St. Sebastian, which is guarded since the year 931 in Ebersberg. For a week but it is over with the heavenly peace. The news that a surgeon would cut off a small piece of the skull fragment in a ceremonial ceremony with a milling cutter on 15 January, so that this piece is given as a relic of the Swabian parish Haisterkirch in the diocese of Rottenbuch-Stuttgart, triggered a violent uproar in Ebersberg.
End of quoting of sources:
Much could be said about the treatment of the skull of a man claimed to be “Sebastian” a Roman soldier. For all Evangelical Christian this kind of worship of moral remains of humans, are despicable.
As the Roman Catholic Order brothers raise a toast, and drink wine of a cup containing a skull, they do not only reduce them selves to zero value. The also drag the Christian faith into the gutters.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator – who is for ever praised. Amen.
People who are involved in such religious rituals, do not only defame the “Jesus” they proclaim to know. They are senseless antichrists, who do not deserve anything but to spend eternity inside the flames of Hell.
My calling is to expose such foolishness and evils. With the hope that some Roman Catholics will read, see, and repent.
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
There is no escape from eternal damnation, for all who claim this kind of religiosity to be a part of the Christian family. We have to learn from the reformers of the Church, and call the Pope and his flock, to repent. Or they will surely perish.
Remember I loved you enough to tell you the truth.
