The Chiesa del Sacro Cuore del Suffragio is a neogothic church in Rome. Within its sacristy hides a museum: The Museum of the Souls in Purgatory (Museo delle Anime del Purgatorio). Inside, you can find exhibitions of various objects and artworks that are supposed to prove the existence of a Christian purgatory. The items on display include Bibles as well as pieces of cloth with hand prints on them.
