About this product
- DescriptionContinuously popular since it first appeared in 1977, TheIncorruptibles remains the ackwledged classic on the bodies of saints that did t undergo decomposition after death. Many remained fresh and flexible for years, or even centuries. After explaining both natural and artificial mummification, the author shows that the incorruption of the saints' bodies fits neither category but rather constitutes a much greater phemen that is unexplained by modern science to this day. The author presents 102 canized saints, beati, and venerables, summarizing their lives, the discovery of their incorruption, and investigations by Church and medical authorities. The incorruptible bodies of saints are a consoling sign of Christ s victory over death, a confirmation of the dogma of the Resurrection of the Body, a sign that the Saints are still with us in the Mystical Body of Christ, and proof of the truth of the Catholic Faith-for only in the Catholic Church do we find this phemen. Impr. 342 pgs 33 Illus, PB.
