Saint Vincent de Paul died in 1660 and was buried normally. His body was disinterred in 1712, 52 years after his death. The disinterment was done in the presence of an archbishop, two bishops, a surgeon, a physician and a number of Church officials and priests and the body was found to be incorrupt. The body was reburied but disinterred once again in 1737 when it was found that the body had decomposed due to an underground flood. However the Saint's incorrupt heart is displayed for veneration at the chapel of the Daughters of Charity in the Rue de Bac, Paris. The bones are encased in a waxen figure of the saint.
