The mummy of first Pope – St. Pius I is one of the best-preserved mummies in the history of mankind. His body was not embalmed, but he was naturally mummified about 1700 years ago.
His remains are considered to be a real treasure for science, because although he suffers from cardiovascular diseases, gallstones, gout, diabetes, caries and tuberculosis, these organs are very well preserved.
This bishop is considered the first official pope. He was born in Aquileia, Italy. And he died in 155 AD to be buried in the beautiful cathedral of Aquileia.
First Pope has been found
Much later, in 1789, the construction of the cathedral was demolished. The Pope’s coffin was opened and everyone was surprised that the body was in perfect condition. In the end, the corpse was moved to a chapel in 1875.
Studies say there are many reasons why the body has been so well preserved. First, because it was mummified naturally, thanks to the low temperatures between November and December, which are the coldest of the year, and a large number of plants and humidity in the vault. But in 2010, scientists had no way to examine leftovers.
The pillow and coffin mattress were filled with plants and vegetables that emitted a strong odor, probably to hide the smell of the corpse, and also to preserve it. There were lavender, mint, hops and juniper berries.
The most surprising thing, however, was that they found a lot of documents that told different versions of the supposed life of the Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth.
Among the documents were the stories of hundreds of prophets who had a life very similar to that of Christ, including the figures of Horus, Mitra, Krishna, Denys, etc.
After the discovery, a large number of versions emerged about what really happened with Jesus. On the other hand, science affirms that there is evidence to prove the existence of Jesus as a man but not the Son of God. The narrative about Jesus was created from the history of life of other prophets and different cultures of the world.
