Bone Church – Kunta Hora and Sedlec Ossuary

Kutna Hora is an ancient city situated in the Czech Republic, renowned for its unique Bone Church known as the Sedlec Ossuary. It is a chapel decorated with human bones and skulls, which was used to store the remains of 40,000 people who died during the Black Death and Hussite Wars. .The construction of the chapel began by a priest named František Dusík in 1351, after the Black Death had killed over half of the city’s population. The chapel was originally meant to be a memorial for the dead, but it eventually took on another role: as a place where bodies could be deposited without blocking streets or homes. The remains were collected from around town and placed in separate chambers, which were then stacked into an ossuary with arched ceilings and walls lined with limestone slabs. The founder also set up special rules for dressing and placing bones according to social status, as well as stipulating an annual fee for the chapel.
