Inside the Abbey of Lucedio

In 1123 the Abbey of Lucedio was built in Northern Italy. For those of you unfamiliar with an abbey, it's a church that was, or is, part of a monastery or a convent. It's run by an abbot (male) or abbess (female) and is where monks or nuns live. The Abbey of Lucedio is said to be cursed by the monks who used to live in it.


What Went Wrong at the Abbey of Lucedio?

It is written that in 1684 many young girls who lived in the area met the devil in their dreams. After seducing them, he sent them to visit the monks at Lucedio's Abbey. The girls managed to corrupt the abbey and convert the monks to Satanism. From that moment on, a long history of evil rituals, tortures, homicides, cruelty and even cases of child molestation began. Things were so twisted that the abuse reached Rome and Pope Pio VI closed the Abbey. That was on September 10, 1784 - one hundred years later.


Strange Happenings at the Abbey of Lucedio

That's not where the story ends. In fact, that's where some say it begins. In one room of the Abbey there is a pillar that mysteriously gets wet. It's called the crying column (post or pillar) and people say that it cries because of all the cruelty it's seen. The room with the crying column is called the judgement room because it's the room where all the monks made their decision about sentences for people's crimes.


The Crypt of the Abbey of Lucedio

Under the church there's a crypt where all the abbots are buried. It seems like they're all down there to guard something evil blocked in the crypt. People say that an evil presence was captured and then locked under the church. To make sure the evil presence never got out, it needed to be watched all the time. The guardians had to be powerful religious men, such as abbots. The abbots were buried in the sitting position in a circle. The strange thing about this is that all the abbots became mummified in a natural way.


Freaky Fog at the Abbey of Lucedio

Another freaky and disturbing fact about the Abbey of Lucedio is the strange appearance of fog that mysteriously rises in one area of the building - the Principato and the tower.

I am 12 and I can suggest some I have/am reading, appropriate for 11/12. NOVELS: CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (by Roald Dahl)- it is for 8  and above and really good for anyone to read THE SECRET GARDEN (by Frances Hodgson Burnett)- It Is really for 9 and above. I am sure u will enjoy it.  HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME (by Victor Hugo)-You may not like it at first but slowly you will just LOVE it! -FOR A LITTLE OLDER AGE (13 onwards) Princess Diaries (by Meg Cabot, 18 parts)- It is a good book. deals with the autobiography/Diaries/Journals of a teen princess. Well I mostly read Novels so I know which standard they usually are and the age for which it is meant. I red short stories too but I cannot understand what age they are for. So I can only tell you about Novels.  ENJOY! :):]:-)
