The Incorruptibles


Joan Carroll Cruz presents 102 stories of holy men and women whose bodies have been discovered as incorrupt. 

SKU: 550668 Category:


Continuously popular since it first appeared in 1977, The Incorruptibles remains the acknowledged classic on the bodies of saints that did not undergo decomposition after death. Many remained fresh and flexible for years, or even centuries. After explaining both natural and artificial mummification, Joan Carroll Cruz shows that the incorruption of the saints’ bodies fits neither category but rather constitutes a much greater phenomenon that is unexplained by modern science to this day. The author presents 102 canonized saints, beati, and venerables, summarizing their lives, the discovery of their incorruption, and investigations by Church and medical authorities.
