The Quest For Jesus' Foreskin

The Quest For Jesus' Foreskin

That said, some were skeptical, with 17th century Vatican librarian Leo Allatius allegedly asserting that the foreskin of Jesus would have ascended to heaven with him. Continued embarrassment over the little thing in 1900 led to the church declaring anyone who wrote about the Holy Foreskin would be excommunicated. Around this time the last, and supposedly true, Holy Foreskin existed in Calcutta. Either way, the town now had the Holy Foreskin and widely proclaimed it, including having a little celebration on the January 1st feast day. Unfortunately, in 1983 the Holy Foreskin went missing for good.
