Here's a Time story of 2 years ago about a find of St. Paul's putative sarcophagus:,8599,1569014,00.html . The skulls of Ss. Peter & Paul have traditionally been supposed to be in St. John Lateran. If they find a skull in that sarcophagus, something's gotta give.

  Channel surfing, I happened upon a show on EWTN (the Catholic Network) about the "Year of St. Paul." I hadn't realized that Paul's tomb had been unearthed in the past couple of years in Rome. Does anyone know whether it's been further examined and if the claim that it contains Paul's remains is legit?
