Saints

The Best Stuff We've Read This Week

Each week, Josh and Chuck read tons of great articles, some of them really good. Here are the best of the bunch for your enjoyment.

Ooooo, would that I had €800 to €1,200. That is the base price for the head of Saint Vitalis of Assisi, the patron saint of genital and bladder disorders, which is to go on sale from a family's private collection in County Meath, Ireland. The head, encased in glass and metal that appears to have been made just for it, is not evidence of the incorruptible nature of saints, as it's mainly a skull adorned with a wreath. What's more, it doesn't even positively belong to the Italian-born saint, who died in 1370.
