Ossuaries, crypts and catacombs

Ossuaries, crypts and catacombs – dark places with a special atmosphere where you might start to feel scared.

Memento mori. Dust to dust. Such as are you, we have been, such as we are, you will be – some of the common inscriptions above the entrances to crypts and ossuaries. These are places where we often don’t feel comfortable. Ossuaries should not, however, scare us, but serve as a reminder of the transience of human life and the existence of death.
