Friday 24th June - Treasures of Heaven

I've always liked relics. It might be the Catholic in me or it might just be my interest in the macabre, either way, I really enjoyed the Treasures of Heaven exhibition at the British Museum. So much so in fact, I went twice.

Now, I wasn't supposed to take photos but....

Portable altar with hidden relics, including one from St Benedict

Foot reliquary of St Blaise

Reliquary of the Holy Thorn

A dead body - I thought it fit in well with the theme, and it's giving a thumbs up
