Mind blowing Skeletons Retrieved From The Catacombs Of Rome

There are many secret labyrinth tombs buried underneath the city of Rome, as in 1578 the tombs were used by the famous saints as a passageway.  A discovery has been made regarding the skeletons that were found, which were related to the Christian Martyrs also known as saints who strongly believed in Christianity.

These skeletons were given the name "Catacomb Saints" at the point of discovery, as they were spread out across entire Europe, as a replacement for the wreckage's that have been made during the Protestant Reformation where countless relics have been plundered, destroyed or stolen.

Upon arrival, the skeletons were clothed with many different jewels, diamonds and other expensive accessories. The churches used these relics as a role model display for everyone to remember that wealth would await them after death, only if they were fully committed to the Christian Faith and Belief. However, many of the skeletons are not put on display yet,  as they still are stored in containers awaiting to be dressed up and revealed to the public.

These are images from the book "Heavenly Bodies", written by Paul Koudounaris who traveled all across Europe searching and documenting the status of each Saint.
