Love, Self

A newly found papyrus fragment suggests Jesus was married. One problem: It seems to be a hoax.

In the least-surprising development to come out of the news of a papyrus fragment suggesting a Holy Spouse, the Vatican said on Friday that the text is a fake. In a long analysis of the artifact published in L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's newspaper, Alberto Camplani, a professor at Rome's La Sapienza university, details his doubts about the text's authenticity. In the same issue, the paper's editor voices his concerns that "the papyrus is indeed a clumsy forgery." [The Daily Beast]
