The paper analyzes the main steps of the settlement of the Theatines in Lecce (1586) and the deep relationship between the convent of the Theatines and the religious order leaders in Naples, especially referring to artistic choices. A group of unpublished bank policies, paid to Giovanni Antonio Guerra and Marcantonio Ferraro for the famous wooden tabernacle of St. Irene’s church in Lecce (1598), confirms this relationship. As a matter of fact the Theatines of Naples demanded several works to the two authors, including the choir of the Oratory of the SS. Crucifix of Knights; the notary contract for the choir is here published (1608). In the mid of the Eighteenth century, St. Irene’s tabernacle was destroyed, but the four wooden statues of the Lecce’s Patron Saints are here considered surviving parts of the original presbytery’s decoration. They represent a visual evidence of the struggle of relics which involved both the Theatines and the Jesuits in the main city of Salento, until the half of the Seventeenth century.
