NO WEB FOR FRANCE - At the crypt of the Mother Church dedicated to San Nicolò of Bari in Gangi, Sicily, Italy on January 2019 one can discover standing well aligned in niches, the well conserved mummies of 44 priests of the parish "Once a month", Father Don Giuseppe known as Pinot said, "I celebrate the mass here surrounded by my faithful and by my fellows. They remind us that we are passing through this earth and they are still part of our lives years after their departure. You will notice that each one of them displays above their heads a eulogy in the form of a poem retracing their lives."
Sicily will reveal over time a real research laboratory on mummification. It is spreading throughout the island and there is not an important village in sight that does not display the bodies of their priests, monks or citizens in the crypt of their church. Photo by Eric Vandeville/ABACAPRESS.COM
