The inscription on the stone covering the lead-lidded pots states they contain bones from several martyrs including Hippolytus and Anastasius, and from Popes Cornelius, Callixtus, Felix and Peter.

Inscription from the church of Santa Maria in Cappella in Rome

The church of Santa Maria in Cappella, owned by the Doria Pamphilj family, is located in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome and was consecrated on March 25, 1090.

The bone fragments don’t directly challenge the millennial tradition that Saint Peter was martyred on the Vatican Hill and buried beneath the present-day Basilica bearing his name. During certain period in history, relics of important saints were regularly split up. If authentic, the relics from these early Christian saints would have been collected from various sites and placed inside the medieval altar where they have now been discovered.

Archaeologist Cristiano Mengarelli, who has studied the altar and the inscription on the pots, attested that the assortment of relics is typical in “the consecration of other churches documented for this period.”

Why do you deliberately fuck up your own articles by double-posting part of the content and then truncating the remainder? It is so annoying. This is not some accident; you are doing this deliberately and repeatedly.

By truncating the last five paragraphs (included below), you attempt to make readers believe that this is some new discovery when it is anything but new.

Workmen Allegedly Find Bone Fragments of Saint Peter Inside Medieval Altar in Rome

During restoration works in the Roman church of Santa Maria in Cappella, workers have found several ancient pots that supposedly contain bone fragments from four early Christian martyrs and from four of the first popes, including St. Peter the Apostle.

The inscription on the stone covering the lead-lidded pots states they contain bones from several martyrs including Hippolytus and Anastasius, and from Popes Cornelius, Callixtus, Felix and Peter.

Archaeologist Cristiano Mengarelli, who has studied the altar and the inscription on the pots, attested that the assortment of relics is typical in “the consecration of other churches documented for this period.”

Further investigation will need to take place before the authenticity of the relics can be verified. The remains of the apostle Peter venerated under St. Peter’s Basilica correspond to what is known from the historical record and archaeologists have identified them as the remains of a man who lived in the first century AD.

In 1939, researchers discovered eight fragments during excavations in the Vatican necropolis under the main altar of St. Peter’s Basilica, the place considered to be the burial site of the first pope since ancient times. The fragments were found wrapped in a purple and gold cloth and studies showed that they belonged to a “robust” man who at the time of death was between the ages of 60 and 70 years old.

On June 26, 1968, Pope Paul VI announced that the remains of the apostle Peter had been “identified in a manner which we believe convincing” and that very patient and careful investigations had been carried out “with a result which we believe positive.”

Pope Francis celebrated Mass with a public exhibition of the bones in 2013, marking the first time that the Vatican had ever put the relics on display.

According to tradition, the apostle Peter was martyred by the Emperor Nero in Rome in the year 67 of the Christian era.

Now that we have the full article, we can see that this is part of a plan by Rome to palm off some old bones (of which they have a huge supply) as the bones of Peter. This has apparently been in the works since Vatican II. Certainly they tested the waters for such a major new tourism franchise as "The Guaranteed Genuine Bones Of Peter And Other Alleged Early Bishops Of Rome". And, contrary to your version of the article, these bones are nothing new and Pope Frank The Hippie Pope held a celebration of these skeletal remains back in 2013. So this isn't news at all in any meaningful sense.

This wasn't really news when it happened 4 years ago. This is closer to a press release for the Vatican's tourism promotion office than to any kind of actual news.
