BiographyEdit

Because of a peculiar microclimate in the crypts, bodies that were entombed within the Reformed-Franciscan Monastery and adjoining Church of St. Casimir in Krakow, Poland have been naturally mummified. They include about 300 friars and 730 laymen.

MummificationEdit

The former were laid to rest on the bare floor, without coffins – their legs covered in sand. Many of these mummies have interesting stories, like that of the lady on the right, above. As the story goes, she was poisoned by her father on her wedding day due to marrying a man he didn’t approve of, and buried in her wedding gown.
