I actually once saw an entire movie about this, pretty interesting.
It became clear to me there is MUCH MORE to the story than we are told. The entirely miraculous conservation of the body had/has some political
motivation. It's a long time ago I saw the movie, so I might not have all details anymore.
Anyway..I vaguely remember those monks being a suppressed minority in a monastery in Siberia ..and the monk, after his death, became sort-of like a
political symbol for those monks in that area.
So...the entire thing is simply a stunt, the monks exhumed him, preserved him (clearly evident because they used salt to dry out the body...and even a
stick/frame type of thing to keep him upright). And then later on they put him on display as a "miracle" with the added tale of the "unexplained" and
magically conserved body which did not compose.
It's actually amazing to think about how the entire "miracle" came to be in the first place...because one must be BLIND not to see that efforts were
made to conserve him....but as always if people want to *believe* something it's better to ignore and believe in a "miracle" instead.
