I just assumed that site was a Catholic-run site since that whole Incorruptible thing seems to be mostly a Catholic thing. Not that there aren't other holy folks that have been preserved like that, but I've alway associated that particular tern, Incorruptible, with the Catholic faith.

Several of those on that page have wax faces & hands too.

I've no clue what a canonical opening of a tomb is. I'd guess it's related to them being sainted in some way. Honestly though, I've no clue.

I'm not Catholic but I find this stuff fascinating, mostly for the really-old-dead-people factor.
