Also known as the Spear of Destiny, this pre-eminent Christian relic is believed by some to be the actual spear used to confirm the death of Christ on the cross. Today, it resides in Vienna’s Kunsthistoriches Museum, but the story of its journey to this final resting place is one of power and glory and greed, as history’s most infamous leaders – including Napoleon and Hitler – sought to wield its alleged supernatural power in their bids to conquer the world. Whatever one believes about the Spear, there can be no doubt that the desire to possess this relic has helped to shape the destiny of mankind.
