The Lance or Spear of Longinus is the lance that was used to pierce the flesh of Jesus ChristWP when he was crucified. The artifact is featured prominently in the Bible Black: New Testament anime series.
The tip of the lance was cast into metal around 3000 B.C. A detailed analysis reveals that it contains traces of numerous elements: iron, carbon, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, and very small amounts of manganese, tungsten, vanadium, titanium and cobalt.
A fragment of the spear's tip is discovered by archaeologist Souji Yoshitani near a port town in MoroccoWP shortly before the man's disappearance. He secretly stores the artifact in a bank safety deposit box (numbered 3079) under his son's name.
The spear is stolen by Reika Kitami, who awakens inside the body of Kurumi Imari after being held hostage by a group of bank robbers. She uses the spear against her Tokken colleague Aki Ichikawa by reciting a chant while holding the artifact against her head, knocking the young girl out in a blinding flash.
Later, she cuts her own hand with the fragment during a bizarre ritual in the Academy basement. The tip starts glowing red after being dunked in a golden chalice filled with semen and blood, and Imari/Kitami painfully inserts it inside Aki's vagina.
Sometime later, during the ritual of the mysterious witch Jody Crowley in the same basement, the spear shoots out from Aki's abdomen in another bright flash, slicing straight through her skin. As a drop of Aki's blood leaks from the artifact onto the floor, the spear itself slowly disappears into the floor and shoots out several metal chains, restoring the infamous Bible Black spell book.
- What becomes of the spear tip at the end of the final episode of the New Testament remains unclear. The spear seems to dissolve into the Bible Black, and is possibly sealed up along with the book by Hiroko Takashiro.
