Relics in the Fathers of the Church

This is a compilation of passages from the Church Fathers where they talk about relics. I wanted to make this page as a resource to respond to people who say that the early Christians didn't keep relics, since I think they did. Some of these quotes are also about how they honored the saints, since that is a closely related topic. BTW I'd love to add to this, do any of you know any other quotations from the Church Fathers that show us that they did keep relics and did honor the saints who died before them?
