Laconic Description: SCP-4300 is the completely indestructible corpse of Cristóbal Bazán, a slave who was killed in the year 1610.

His story is told through a series of journal fragments and testimonies, in which his Catholic faith is tested again and again as he is beaten by his slave master. He summons a demon and almost surrenders his soul for revenge, but relents when the Virgin Mary herself appears and inspires him to be faithful. The demon kills him anyways and his body is buried where the Foundation eventually finds it. A fellow slave says she thinks he went to heaven.

Additional Context: SCP-4300 was an entry in the SCP-4000 Contest, where it won 25th place.
