An entire City of Salentine of the Salerno region of southern Italy in the late 1400s collectively refused to forsake their savior Jesus Christ and convert to Islam -The mohammedans then slaughtered 12,000 and enslaved 5,000 people

The 1480 AD depiction of the skulls of their remains behind the gorgeous High Altar of the Cathedral was created prior to the discovery of their incorrupt bodies
