Researchers to Uncover Apostle's Tomb

Vatican City (WVLT/AP) - It could turn out to be a find of biblical proportion.

Vatican archaeologists say they've identified a tomb believed to be that of the Apostle Paul.

The find was made under Rome's second largest basilica.

Vatican experts say they've always known the sarcophagus was there, but what's in it remains a mystery.

Tourists and pilgrims visiting the Vatican will see the unearthing process through a glass floor.

Vatican officials say they do hope to open it, in due time, after freeing it from centuries of plaster.
