Doing some research I have stumbled upon the supposed bodies of saints which have not rotten despite no supposed preservation. The most famous of these bodies Is saint Bernadette whose organs were supposedly soft decades after here death. Now I wish to know if there is any explanation for this since bodies can’t stay the same way for decades.

What fun this has been.

Bodies can be partially preserved in a variety of ways, but none of them produce anything like what “incorruptibility” implies: a perfectly preserved body that looks exactly as it did at the instant of death. The hands and face of Bernadette look like this because they’re *made of wax*:

The actual body is buried beneath that. A description of the body from a century ago called it “practically mummified, covered with patches of mildew and quite a notable layer of salts, which appear to be calcium salts. ... The skin has disappeared in some places, but it is still present on most parts of the body.”

So, the notion that this is incorruptible is what is known in scientific terms as ... https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-scientific-explanation-of-incorrupt-bodies-of-Catholic-Saints-Is-it-just-a-hoax
