Vatican Discovery Proves to be Apostle Peter’s Burial Ground

An important archaeological discovery was made in the Vatican when a site for construction of car parking was being cleared. Archaeologists discovered an ancient necropolis of the times of St. Apostle Peter, the same that is mentioned in the Gospel. Now this version is studied by historians; if it proves true, this in its turn will confirm another hypothesis suggested by historian Magrherita Guarducci. She supposes that an entombment of St. Apostle Peter was found under the altar that is situated under the St.Peter’s basilica dome.  

This version has been waiting for confirmation or refutation since 1952.

Director of Vatican museums Francesco Buranelli and archbishop Francesco Marchisano, “the minister of the Vatican cultural wealth”, have confirmed that  the discovery is of top-priority importance. The statement was made at the time when archaeologists haven’t yet provided final conclusions concerning the discovery.

At the site of archeological dig historians discovered remains, two sarcophagi, Christian and pagan, floor mosaic, amphora, fragments of terracotta  articles. But further digging changed opinion of the scientists. Necropolis dated from the Nero epoch includes both, Christian and pagan entombments. Buranelli says: “These are first burial grounds of Christians, the first made after those found under the St.Peter’s basilica in the Vatican, the first after Saint Apostle Peter’s grave. We made a decision to present the findings in a complete historical condition as soon as the works will be finished.”
