And his head’s for sale… You can’t make this kind of lunacy up.
The severed head of a man said to be the patron saint of genital disease will go on auction in County Meath on Sunday. The skull is allegedly that of St Vitalis of Assisi, an Italian Benedictine monk from the 14th century. It belonged to an Anglo-Irish family from County Louth, and is housed in a Queen Anne case dating from the 17th century.
And I LOVE the next line!
There has been no official verification of the claim.
Isn’t that fantastic! Just fantastic! [And doesn’t the head look a lot like Jim Linville????? Is it just me, or could this be his ancestor???!!!][via Chuck Jones on FB]
