The Tomb of Luke the Evangelist 5/27/2015 - by Brian Janeway PhD

Several years ago an intensive investigation of human remains, purported to be those of St. Luke (author of the Third Gospel and the book of Acts) were undertaken by an international team of over 30 experts from various disciplines, including numismatics (coins), metallography, chemistry, crystallography, and epigraphy (ancient scripts). After nearly ten years of work, the results were announced in worldwide press accounts.

Hist. 3.4.6; LCL 1:197).
