Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of author names relevant to the study of the tomb of Saint Peter. The excavations beneath the Vatican basilica of St. Peter between 1940-49 and the reaction of the scientific world to the results of the archeological findings have given a new impetus to the much-studied question of the Roman tradition that Peter is buried in Rome on the Vatican hill. At the present time the entire matter is still controversial. For this reason it appears to be necessary to have a complete annotated bibliography of the entire problem which involves not only the tomb of St. Peter venerated at the Vatican, but also the Memoria Apostolorum at San Sebastiano on the via Appia which tradition associates with Peter's grave.

Keywords: tomb of Saint Peter; Vatican excavation
