    Different bits of him scattered around in Bulgaria, Montenegro and Damascus. I didn't know they had 10mms that long ago! Sounds as though he might have been on Cyprus when he was shot.

  3. It is not likely that these bones are those of John the Baptist. The veneration of saints and relics did not occur until later centuries. I believe the story said something like 5th century church.

    Even if they are authentic they are of no significance.

    What is of significance is what John did and was recorded in the Bible.

    I agree with Vic Hays that it means nothing to the overall competition between religions, non-religions, etc., since nobody really claims that these various saints didn't exist. I can see this being interesting to Catholics, but otherwise it's about as important as the debate over whether Daniel Boone's bones are really buried in his grave in KY.
