Finding St. Catherines head, and Galileo's middle finger wasn't all that difficult. Surprisingly enough, there are a TON of random body parts of saints and sinners floating all around various cities in Europe (See our story of finding the theifs arm in Prague). One of these sinners, the heretic Galileo, has a finger and tooth being stored in a small glass case in the Galileo museum in Florence. Due to Pope Urban the VIII's protests, Galileo could not be buried in the tomb of his ancestors becasue of his heresy (according to the church at the time), so it seems very fitting that all that is left of him is, "the bird" pointing directly at the sky. Besides finding the finger, the museum itself is incredibly interesting, so make sure you leave an apporpiate amount of time to explore, we suggest 1 to 2 hours. Now as far as St. Catherine's head, it is very interesting as to how many people have no idea that there is a decapitated, mumified head in the middle of a huge cathedral in Siena Italy. You may be asking yourself why the mumified head of a saint is sitting in the middle of a catholic church (again, ALOT of catholic churches throughout the world have various body parts of various people sitting around in them) and the story basically goes something like this. St. Catherine of Siena had had holy visions since she was a small girl, and was even said to have recieved stigmata when she was 28. As this was all taking place in the 1300's, Catherine died at the ripe old age of 33 while in Rome. Unfortunately for Siena, Rome decided that they wanted to keep the body of Catherine so the people of Siena were forced to do something very drastic. Seeing as it would be way to difficult to smuggle Catheines entire body out of the city of Rome, the thieves decided to just take her head and smuggle it out of the city in a paper bag. To avoid capture, Catherines head was said to have turned into hundreds of rose petals sitting in the bottom of the bag, only to rematerialze once it reached its final resting place in what is now the Basilica San Domenico.
