Yet more morbid stuff - Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome

" This church is noted for its crypt which contains the bones of some four thousand Capuchin friars. There is a series of chambers housing the skeletal remains of the monks. Each chamber has been decorated with the bones of the monks. Various bones are arranged on the ceilings and walls forming intracate patterns or have been sorted in piles against walls. Each of the chambers are different, some even contain the haunting full skeletons of monks clothed in the traditional brown habit."
