It\'s the Sedlec Ossuary, a Catholic cathedral near the town of Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic. Originally it was built to help the town grieve after it was nearly devistated after the plauge and a brutal war (dunno the name) in the 14th to 15th century. What\'s amazing about it that nearly all of the ornaments in it are made entirely of human skeletons. Nearly everything in this church from the arches to the chandaleers to the crosses to the altar are bone. Truly amazing. Even part the new Dungeons & Dragons movie was filmed at the cathedral, so watch for it should you go see the flick. Here\'s a few pictures below along with a link to larger photo gallery. Also, TLC\'s new "Mummies : Unwrapped" special has a small feature on the church.

Intriguing to say the least. Any figures as to how many human bodies were used? Imagine being involved in something like this. "Hey you, Joe architect, we\'ve got a couple thousand dead bodies, can you use them to bulid us a church?" Sorry, I guess that\'s in bad taste, but you have to admit it\'s really bizarre. It seems that the grieving process has changed significanty since then.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

So wouldn\'t I either. If there\'s a place where demons enjoy living in, that\'s the place. The whole place is... demonic. Scary. Like ripped out from a horror-movie.

But I\'d like to visit that place. It must have really deep atmosphere.

Imagine playing spiritism there... but that\'s a dream-place for a s4t4nic pyromaniac.

How many ppl have been used there? HUNDREDS OR MAYBE THOUSANDS AND BEYOND.... sick.

But in the middle-ages they used to trap heretics, murderers, rapists etc. inside a wall; they like buried them alive. Imagine...

Oh and back then torturing was entertainment. It didn\'t stop to gladiators. After then, there came witchcrafts etc., so horrible deaths for witches that you could never imagine.

Umm.. Joyda, didn\'t you read what I had originally posted?

"It\'s the Sedlec Ossuary, a Catholic cathedral near the town of Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic."

This church isn\'t a place of satanic rituals. Perhaps you missed the crusifix in the background of some of those pictures. The church was built, not by sadistic psycos out for a jolly, but by a town that was grieving over the loss of nearly all their citizens due to the Black Plauge and a major war. I find it kind of humbling to look at those pictures and know that those people\'s bones are forever in the house of their god. In fact, I kind of envy them since when I die, I\'ll probably just be put in some hole that has no real historical or spiritual significance.


BTW: I\'d PAY 500 dollars to spend the night there!!!

Sorry, mean that, I did not. But it looks like S4t4nic, hmmmm, yes. But atmosphere it gives, and great for religion, that is. But I just said, for Example did I, that they once more horrible things than this did. They, yes, buried humans alive. Hmmmm, sounds scary, does it not?
