The Treasury Museum of St. Francis Basilica in Assisi is located in the adjoining historic church in the town center. The collection is called "Honey" because it includes paintings, textile articles and jewelery of great value and related to the history of the Basilica. Today the collection is kept in the Gothic hall of the Sacred Convent and is composed mostly of Eastern European and sacred jewelery. The heritage is rich in reliquaries, crosses, two Arab dossals red and yellow silk, the frontal of Sixtus IV, eight Flemish tapestries, medieval glazed tiles, stained tables and four preparatory drawings of Roman and Sienese masters. The Museum was enriched in 1986 with 57 tables and a marble bas-relief. Important is the donation of Frederick Mason Perkins, art historian, who during his lifetime collected paintings of Venetian and Tuscan schools of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Of great interest is the Parisian illuminated missal with the Gospels and the letters of St. Louis IX.
