Mummified perjury hand stolen from German church
WHO stole the mummified hand from St Brigida church, Legden, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany? The dead hand had been in a box since 1905. Known as the “perjury-hand”, it is said to have been chopped off a liar.
The congregation are “deeply saddened”, says Alfred Janning. He asks: “Who would do such a thing?“
No. Not chop off a human being’s hand and then stick it in a box inside a church. That was what Jesus would have wanted.
He wants to know who stole the thing…
