    Default A Priest Used The Butt of Jesus as an 18th Century Time Capsule

    A Priest Used The Butt of Jesus as an 18th Century Time Capsule (ARTICLE LINK)

    Excerpt
    A priest in 18th century Spain found a clever niche to hide a secret message to the future - in the derriere of a hollow statue of Christ crucified, called Cristo del Miserere.

    The statue had been removed from the church of Santa Águeda in Sotillo de la Ribera for restoration, and it was conservators at the restoration company who found a hidden document when they took out a removable piece of the wooden statue - the cloth that covers the buttocks.

    And it seems to be an actual "time capsule" - intended to remain hidden for hundreds of years, and a very peculiar and interesting find.

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...

    I have found notes from previous bookbinders whilst carrying out restoration and repairs of several old books. I continue the practice myself.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
