The Fisherman’s Tomb: The True Story of the Vatican’s Secret Search by John O’Neill
Wednesdays at 7:30 PM via Zoom
From earliest times, Christian tradition held that St. Peter was executed in Rome by Emperor Nero and buried on Vatican Hill. But his tomb had been lost to history. In 1939, a team of workers beneath the Vatican unearthed an early Christian grave. This surprising discovery launched a secret quest to discover the long-lost burial place of the Apostle Peter. The incredible, sometimes shocking, story of the 75-year search and its key players has never been fully told – until now. The quest would pit one of the 20th century’s most talented archaeologists – a woman – against top Vatican insiders. The Fisherman’s Tomb is a story of the triumph of faith and genius against all odds.
