One of the ten full skeleton relics from Waldsassen. They are detailed in the Chapter Two of the book. I believe this to be the largest collection of these skeletons still extant, or certainly the largest collection on display–I have read accounts detailing even larger collections in monasteries in the nineteenth century, but as far as I can tell none of these collections were preserved intact.
