“Saint” Leonard of Noblac died in 559 A.D. In St. Leonard’s Church in Kent, the Anglicans have kept 2.000 skulls. Also the Jaws of a lot of departed souls.
This is what the Church in Kent in South West England writes about the remains that is kept in their crypt.
There are some 2000 skulls in the Bonehouse of St Leonard’s Church, mainly arranged on shelves so you can get a goodlook at them.
There are also about 8000 long bones – mainly thigh-bones – in a rather nicely designed pile. So that represents the remains of about 4000 people (men, women and children) – obviously the skulls being more fragile have not survived in such numbers.
The ambitious plan to add the prestigious chancel in the 13th century created a problem: the priests wished to continue to process round the outside of the church on certain special days bearing in solemn procession a Holy Relic of St Leonard. (We do not know what it was.)
Lets look at some more photo’s:
And there is more to come, from the Church in Kent:
The work so far has involved cleaning of the skulls on one rack of shelves with soft brushes, analysis by Bournemouth University staff of a small group of skulls and other bones from the crypt, and provision of new laminated information sheets on what this analysis tells us about distinguishing features on the specimens in relation to evidence of disease or blows to the skull or body.
In addition to the main project, a study is being conducted by a Bournemouth University postgraduate, with local Hythe connections and who is undertaking a Master’s Degree, to determine the evidence of a disease that shows up around the eye sockets.
Some last message from the Anglicans in Kent:
The initial investigation has provided evidence of this feature in at least 40 per cent of a sample of 250 skulls, and it is hoped that the study may provide clues to the health problems, and possibly diet, of the people concerned.
Both the main and the individual projects will add to our knowledge about the people whose skulls and bones are in the crypt and provide increased interest and information to all those visiting the crypt in the future.

Another blogger has left us with the following comment:
There are a lot of teeth (dentists love visiting here!), and you will see that, although worn down by rough food, they show few signs of decay, a benefit of a sugar-free diet.
Those who claim I only criticize Roman Catholics for adoration and veneration of skull, corpses and bones, please pay attention:
I have also written articles about such worship in Orthodox Churches, bot the Greek and the Russian arm of Orthodoxy.
Here is an article about some active bone collectors in the Anglican Church in England.
It underlines that the Anglican Church is a harlot of the Great Prostitute of Rome.
New King James Version (NKJV)
The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.And on her forehead a name was written:
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.
I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
I fail to understand why the priests have cut the jaws out of the skulls of the dead. The Church is not supposed to be a local “dental college”, and this grotesque and morbid form of Church activities has absolutely nothing to do with the Messiah.
The written instruction to the visitors “Please do not touch” is not inspired from the Kingdom of Heaven. Because all of these bones should have been kept in the grave, so they could have returned to dust.
These Jaws do not bite. But the pain and agony the criminal priests face in the fire of Hell, will be a much worse torture than being bitten by all these Jaws. Most likely cut out of the skulls of the martyrs, that refused to take side in the wars of religion in England.
They might be of Jews who were massacred in pogroms around 1100 A.D, when the Jews were forced to either convert to Catholicism, or leave the Catholic Kingdom of England. Dead or alive.
