“These relics were protected and venerated in their entirety at a very early point in history”.
This is the claim from The Roman Catholic Church. The bones found in a crypt in Northern Italy, has been carbon tested. The bones dated back to between 80AD and 340AD.
The Vatican claim that the bones are relics having belonged to Chrysanthus and Daria, two Roman Catholic “saints” who reportedly died in 283 A.D.
Workers found more than 300 bones in one of the sealed crypts, of The cathedral in Reggio Emilia.
The scientists conceded there was no way to identify the skeletons with complete certainty but said ‘all of the evidence we have gathered points toward the relics having belonged to Chrysanthus and Daria.
‘This has been a very rare opportunity to be able to study bones and other relics that relate directly back to a legend that has been passed on for almost 2,000 years.
‘The completeness of the skeletons is also rare for martyrs of this era, implying that these relics were protected and venerated in their entirety at a very early point in history.’
Auxiliary Bishop Lorenzo Ghizzoni of Reggio Emilia had acknowledged the findings could be a major problem.
‘We might discover that these relics are fake. That would be a huge problem for us,’ he said.
‘If we find out we have bones like that, then we have to throw them out, destroy them. That would certainly be a scandal for the faithful.’
The two bodies represented an extraordinary opportunity because there were almost two complete skeletons, giving a lot of material to work with. Often relic bones are progressively removed and kept as spiritual tokens.

Bones removed from the grave, are nothing but an act of wicked grave looters.
For the Roman Catholic Church, all kinds of truths are relative.
Also the age and identity of the bones that their priests have collected.
Since there were no DNA taken of Chrysanthus and Daria, how will we ever come to know where their skeletons are?
And what is the point, finding them, and venerating them?
There is a 260 years gap in the scientific evidence presented by Rome. These bones can be the remains of eight generations of ancient Italians.
The claims of Vatican does not stand the trial of ay court. Nor does it impress anyone who have a minimum of common sense.
This fact does not bother the Vatican, who will keep on venerating and adoring skulls, bones and corpses, regardless of what Christians might tell them.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Even the warning from Jesus, will have no impact on Roman Catholics. They will do what the Pope tells them, and what the Cannon Laws say is blessed and permissible.
