According to the Koran, Adam was buried on Mount Abukais, near Mecca,
although I'd put greater stock on either Eridu or Erech. Noah reputedly
was buried close by the ark's landing site near Jebel Judi, or Pir Omar
Gudrun, or Mount Lubar or Mount Nisir, or the Gordyene (Kurdish)
Mountains. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are supposed to be buried in the
Cave of Machpelah at Hebron. The tomb of Jonah is at Mosul (formerly
Nineveh). Hilprecht reported visiting the tomb of Daniel in what is now

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?
