Tests on relics of Chrysanthus and Daria
« on: August 24, 2011, 07:31:03 PM »
My first post ;D, I saw this article and everything seems to check out and it does seem to be the relics of Chrysanthus and Daria. I know there was a National Geographic special in April on this and wish I could see it on T.V. I was wondering if anybody saw the special or what your opinions on the reliability of the bones.

The Orthodox Church has venerated them as saints and martyrs for many centuries. To me, this is enough "proof" of their sanctity.

Welcome.

The dailymail is a tabloid magazine.

You should find a more legitimate source before believing what you read there. Google around. See what you find.

If you don't see it on the AP or the like. Grain of salt.
If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.
