St. Peter’s Bones: How the Relics of the First Pope Were Lost and Found . . . and Then Lost and Found Again by Thomas J. Craughwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Excellent book filled with history in terms that are easy to understand and simple to follow. I learned a lot from this that I hadn’t known before, and was very pleased to see mention of the awesome St. Vibiana, who’s personal history and story are so slim anyway. This was great, and put the timeline of the archaeology below St. Peter’s Basilica, into fuller perspective. Recommended reading!
