ROME — Vatican archaeologists have unearthed a sarcophagus thought to contain the remains of the Apostle Paul that had been buried beneath Rome’s second largest basilica.
The sarcophagus, which dates to at least A.D. 390, has been the subject of an extended excavation that began in 2002 and was completed last month, the project’s head said this week.
That would be pretty cool if true for the Vatican to have both Peter’s and Paul’s bones.
