The Living Dead. Inside the Palermo Crypt

£75.00

Product description

Westzone Publishing Ltd, 2001. Hard Cover. Fine in Fine dustjacket.. Large book lavishly illustrated and very handsome

A visual tour of the 400-year-old tombs of Palermo featuring haunting images of the dead that trace Sicilian history from the renaissance to the early-20th century.;Between 1500 and 1800, the Cappuccini monks of Palermo devised a method of mummification that was so successful that, up to 500 years later, the bodies of the dead are still astonishingly well preserved. The images in this book take Palermo's history right back to the late Renaissance period, reconstructing the social and ethnic stratification of the city through the study of the dead. The accompanying text provides answers to the questions that have intrigued archaeologists - who were these people? What kind of lives did they live? Why were their bodies mummified? And how was it done?
