7 thoughts on “The Sedlec Ossuary, Czech Republic”

  1. There’s another one in Evora, Portugal—even the walls are made out of bones. It’s supposed to remind us how our mortal remains are going to end up, so we’ll be motivated to get right with God.

  2. Needless to say, this is disturbingly creepy. I don’t think I can put that much appreciation for a tomb that houses around 40,000 dead people. I mean, the architecture and all is amazing, but it feels a bit uncomfortable to walk inside a structure made of dead people’s bones. And I can’t believe that a place that’s supposed to be the place of rest for the deceased is now a tourist destination. But, I guess it offers us a lens in which we can see the “bizarrity” of the ancient people.

  3. What a highly unusual place. I got a kick out of this:

    “It’s guessed that the Ossuary is a common grave of about 40,000 people. This work reminds us of the fact and the worth of eternity. God has concluded a covenant that puts us under an obligation to responsibility towards God and our neighbors. The observance of the covenant will be appreciated when we die.”
