Church of Bones – Ossuary at Kutna Hora
About 80 km East of Prague is the village of Kutna Hora. During the Black Death of the 1300s there were piles of bodies deposited at the Cemetery Church,with almost no one to bury them.
Archeologists uncovering skeletons outside the church.
Years later , with so many bones lying about, a local priest came up with a creative way to adorn the church.
Neatly stacked femur and shin bones, with smiling skulls in the middle.
Spirit of Christ.
Death Not In Vain.
Rich and Poor, All Alike In The End.
Felled By The Plague 800 Years Ago.
