Catholics dying for Vatican Library endorsed coffins
The Vatican Library has endorsed its own line of burial caskets and urns for sale through a US company called Eternal Image.
In late 2004, the Vatican started negotiations with the company to incorporate images from its collection on the company's urns.
The first Vatican-licensed caskets will be available later this year.
One urn that stands 50 centimetres tall, capped with a cross, is said to dwarf standard urns.
The Library will earn a commission from sales.
