SOBIECH, Frank. The "Capella Stenoniana" in Florence: The Tomb of Blessed Niels Stensen (1638-1686). Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2015, vol.85, n.1, pp.73-76. ISSN 1665-1731.

The "Capella Stenoniana" (Niels Stensen chapel) situated in the Basilica of San Lorenzo in Florence is the tomb of the anatomist and founder of modern geology Niels Stensen (1638-1686). It displays commemorative plaques and contains a sarcophagus with Stensen's mortal remains. The tomb of Blessed Stensen, whose canonization process is under way, is always covered with papers with requests for intercession, prayers and thanks written by pilgrims from throughout the world, among them pupils, students, professors and other academics. They come to the tomb to seek Stensen's intercession to obtain God's graces.
