Oh I agree, medieval people wouldn't be as squeamish as me, they got up to some awful things that were 'acceptable' then, but not now. Well, ......., to each his/her own. Maybe you'll end up in a glass case in an exhibition some time in the future. (Don't know whether to add an emoticon here or not, nothing seems to fit!!)

I quite possibly will - I have considered leaving my remains to be plastinated ala Gunther von Hagens Bodyworlds!

That would be your choice of course. If I had to chose, I'd prefer to donate the usable bits of my body to help someone else in need. The Crusader didn't have any choice, but I guess he probably would have preferred a Christian burial with all the honours a Crusader would have expected.

Plastinating is being useful - the bodies become educational. I have an interesting surgical pin people might like to see.

He got a Christian burial didnt he though? He was entombed in the crypts of St Michans.

It was centuries later that the crypts were opened and it was found that the people buried in there had mummified.

Im sure his soul was long gone.

Remember you cannot have a Cathedral without a 1st class relic. That being a piece of their body. A second class relic is a piece of something they owned.

They've got a guy, he has pleaded guilty and is in custody/remanded for sentencing.

I'd just like to know why he did it. Senseless act.

Won't matter. The solicitor will give the usual "he's had a tough upbringing"..."no facilities in his area"..."trying to turn his life around"

Basically it will have been everybody else's fault and not his.

Judge ordered urinalisys for the accused. Nuff said.

Edit, the defending solicitor did. Just to prove he was clean and sober, but he still pleaded guilty to robbing the head of the Crusader. Honestly.

It is well known story in waterford where a guy tried to steal a candle stick from the Waterford prayer room and lost a thumb in the process.

What about the guy who threw a bacon sandwich at a mosque in the UK and was later killed in prison?
