Bones of Saint Philipp for sale in Russia

The skull and bone purported to be holy relics of Saint Philipp are for sale by a private owner on a Russian website. The Russian Orthodox Church has called the sale "blasphemous."

According to a representative of the seller, the bones were salvaged from a box in the St Petersburg Atheism Museum which was created during the Soviet era. He hopes that the sale will bring 1,000 euros.
