The Crucifix of Nicolo Aldovrandi — short story

Welcome to our All Saint’s Eve edition of Fresh New Shorts. Listen to new short fiction from award-winning writers.

The Crucifix of Nicolo Aldovrandi, by John Blackmore, pays homage to the settings, characters, and atmosphere of an Edgar Allen Poe story. A Florentine priest near the end of his life is confronted about a body missing from its grave, one that should have been interred decades ago. The priest had been dealing in corpses—simple farmers, soldier, servants. But his decision about what to do with the deceased and beautiful Nicolo Aldovrandi returns to haunt him.
