Fra Giorgio Nibbia (1555-1619)

Taz-Zuntier or 'Chapel of Bones'
I've often mentioned that Christianity can ( and does ) appear as a cult of the dead and as a cult of bones as relics of humanity. Instead of letting the dead sink into the Earth from which they came the Church manipulates bones in death as it manipulated the living. The Chapel of Bones attributed to Fra Giorgio Nibbia (1555-1619) is one example although largely destroyed by enemy action over Malta and the actions of a secularist Government in the 1970's. The Chapel evidenced and demonstrated the dead of the nearby hospital.
