THE INCORRUPTIBLES by Joan Carroll Cruz.

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. After explaining both natural and artificial mummification, the author shows that the incorruption of the Saints’ bodies fits into neither category but constitutes a much greater phenomenon which is unexplained by modern science even to this day. The author presents 102 canonized Saints, Beati and Venerables, summariizing their lives, the discovery of their incorruption and investigations by Church and medical authorities. Paper.
