  1. Incorruptibility

    Incorruptibility is a Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox belief that supernatural intervention allows some human bodies to avoid the normal process of decomposition after death as a sign of their holiness. Bodies that reportedly undergo little or no decomposition, or delayed decomposition, are sometimes referred to as incorrupt or incorruptible. Covert embalming is sometimes invoked to explain the appearance of incorruptibility. The incorruptibility may occur in the presence of factors that bolster decomposition, as in the cases of Catherine of Genoa, Julie Billiart or Francis Xavier.
