Elaborately Jeweled Skeletons
In 1578, a series of underground burial sites were discovered in Rome that contained the remains of thousands of individuals assumed to be early Christian martyrs. However, most of their identities were unknown. The bones were disinterred and sent to churches around Europe to replace holy relics that had been destroyed during the Reformation.
The receiving churches spent years covering the revered skeletal remains with elaborate costumes encrusted with gold and precious gems. For nearly three hundred years, these relics were worshiped as saints and protectors of their communities. When questions and doubts about their authenticity arised in the modern era, the jewel-covered saints became a source of embarrassment and many were either hidden away or destroyed.
In a new book due out October 8, 2013 titled Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs, author Paul Koudounaris covers their long and misunderstood history. The book includes images of more than seventy jeweled skeletons and stories of dozens more.
I want James Cassells of Asking Alexandria because he chokes his women during sex and that is hot as fuck!
My old cats, Tom and Little, always slept together in a guitar case. They both lived for seventeen years and my family is still convinced that they were in love. Little was perfectly healthy when Tom died, but a week after his death she stopped eating and would hide behind couches and in corners all day. Within a month, she passed away too. They are buried side by side in our garden.
This is the saddest fucking thing ever omg my heart
I love you. I love you with absolutely everything I have. I think about you all the time. I think about how you make me smile and how you make me feel like I have a chance at being a real person. I think about your laugh and the way it lightens up my entire mood. I think about us playing and how its my favorite thing in the world. I think about your struggles and I want nothing more than to help you through them. About how you have been so much and about how I think you’re the strongest and most amazing man in the whole world. I think about how I would love nothing more than to make you happy and to show you what a good woman looks like. I want everything for you. I want you to achieve everything you set out to achieve. I want you to have the entire world because I know you are special enough to obtain it. I want to sit with you and listen to music while you use me as your drum kit. I want to watch you dance in the car. I want to share embarrassing moments with you. I want to watch stupid movies and bad cartoons. I want to cook for you and I want to take care of you. I want to be the last person you think about before you go to bed and I want to be the first person you think about when you wake up. I pray for you every night and I want to pray with you before every meal and before bed. I want to have a genuine God centered relationship with you. I want to fight with you and make up with you. I want to help you through everything and support you. I want to give my entire soul to you. I want to hold your hand and have dinner with our families. I want to introduce you to everyone as my boyfriend. I want to take random trips with you and I want my camera to document everything that we do. I want to try weird foods with you and get caught in the rain. I want to walk under trees with you and cheer on football teams. I want to go sledding and drink hot chocolate with you. I want to sit next to you by the fire with your guitar in your hands. I want to watch you worship God on stage because I know that’s where you’re happiest. I want to hear a bass playing morning, noon and night. I want you, all of you, your flaws, your fears, your failures, your skills, your ideas, your passions. I just want to be given the chance to show you how absolutely amazing you are.
He is amazing <3
