When Tradition Meets Archaeology...

I saw this story a couple weeks ago but just now got around to blogging it.......

The first-ever scientific tests on what are believed to be the remains of the Apostle Paul “seem to confirm” that they do indeed belong to the Roman Catholic saint, Pope Benedict XVI said Sunday.

So they have confirmed a tomb that tradition claims to hold the bones of Paul may in fact have bones of the right era. Still I find it a bit of a leap to say it is actually PAul's. I find it a convenient "confirmation".

Not that it really makes an iota's difference to me anyway.
