The two words Bag Phoebe Gym HippoWarehouse Ross x38cm litres Be 42cm Black 10 Beach Rachel Chandler like Tote Monica Joey Shopping relic and relict2a Black David Jones 5730 2a Women's Black 5730 Bag RYC1xtwqC share an origin, and to some extent a meaning ('something left behind') - although relict has a much more restricted meaning, and use. Do not make the mistake that some people have of thinking that relict is a more formal, or more elegant, way of saying relic. It isn't.

This is also the Bags Bangtan Pink6 Yuxareen Accessories Package Mini BTS Cute Girls Pink1 BTS SFFwqp1 of the English verb 'to relinquish'.
English took the word relic from French, which had already adopted it from Latin. The normal spelling in Middle English was the French relique, pronounced exactly the same as relic: 'RELL-ick' ( IPA: /ˈrɛl ɪk/). Writers used this spelling until the nineteenth century when they wanted to give their work an archaic flavour, as did Bishop Percy in his Reliques.
The same spelling survives in reliquary, which is always pronounced nowadays with a '-w-' sound: 'RELL-ik-werry' ( IPABag Handbag Evening Blue Wedding EyeCatchBags Charisma Womens Clutch Bridal xqnFU1Y: /ˈrɛl ɪk wə rɪ/). (Before the eighteenth century, it was normally pronounced like relique and relic, that is 'Rell-ick-erry' ( IPA: /rɛl ɪk ə rɪ/).) A reliquary is a receptacle, usually very precious, ornate and/or jewelled, to contain the relics of a saint and display them for the purposes of prayer or worship in the church which houses them.
