How do Skeletons of Saints end up in church vitrines? Where they buried once?


I assume they are not mummies and have not been put in the Vitrine with skin & flesh?

The bodies were at some point interred into crypts where their flesh decayed away to leave the bare bones. Then at some later point they were retrieved and placed in the vitrines for display. Were they actually the bones of the people as claimed? It is often hard to say.
