About this title

Synopsis:

69 color photographs. With text by Laura Facchi.

From the Publisher:

Between 1500 and 1800, the Cappuccini monks of Palermo devised a method of mummification that was so successful that, up to five hundred years later, the bodies of their dead are still astonishingly well preserved. The people they prepared for burial in the Chiesa dei Cappuccini were mostly from the higher levels of society and many are still dressed in their rich funeral clothes.

The images in this book enable us to take Palermo's history right back to the late Renaissance period, reconstructing the social and ethnic stratification of the city through the study of its dead. The accompanying text answers many questions that have intrigued archaeologists -- Who were these people? What kind of lives did they lead? Why were their bodies mummified? How was it done?
