Cadaver Synod is a single page Oglaf story with a half page Epilogue.

SynopsisEdit

MumstheWord

"Mum"'s the word.

A priest accuses the now dead pope of fraud. Despite being dead, the pope confesses. The priest speaking for the defence smells a rat and dramatically reveals that the prosecution is using a necromancer to magically control the pope's body (he also does conjugal visits to dead former lovers).

EpilogueEdit

During one such conjugal visit, the head comes of the corpse. But that's no reason to stop.

TrivaEdit

As the alt text suggests, the Cadaver synod was a real event. In 897, Pope Stephen VII put the exhumed corpse of his predecessor Pope Formosus on trial for perjury. Formosus was convicted, but the city of Rome rose against Stephen, and he was imprisoned and murdered.
