Archaeology News: Oldest Known Image of St. Paul

In this photo provided by the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano Monday, June 29, 2009, a fresco showing what Vatican officials say is the oldest known icon of St Paul, discovered by the Pontificial Commission of Sacred Archeology in the Catacomb of Santa Tecla in Rome on June 19, 2009. Archaeologists recently unearthed and opened the white marble sarcophagus located under the Basilica of St. Paul’s outside the Walls of the Vatican in Rome, and scientific tests indicate the mortal remains probably belong to the apostle St. Paul.
