Holy Head

Catherine of Siena was born on March 25th, 1347 and died in Rome on April 29th, 1380 where she was subsequently buried. She has since been elevated to sainthood by the 'Holy' See of Rome.

If you visit the Basilica of St. Dominic in Siena itself, you will find her mummified head on open display in a glass box. If you arrive at the right time, you can even see it processed through the streets.

How shall I put it?

Ah, yes.
