    Do you mean "Longinus"? I don't think he was cursed. You might be thinking of the Wandering Jew.

    Apparently, he didn't live forever, but was beheaded. The story of Longinus is at the bottom of this utterly meaningless document.

    good reading for me.
    Now i have another deal . The skull of Adam.
    On a Johnny Cash Album. (At the Holy Land i think it was called).
    Johnny tells a myth that adams skull was at the base of the cross of Christ,and when some of his blood touched the skull,Adam came back to life .(Or something similar i was quite young when i heard this record)
    all i could redily find was this
    There was a tradition current among the Jews that the skull of Adam, after having been confided by Noah to his son Shem, and by the latter to Melchisedech, was finally deposited at the place called, for that reason, Golgotha. The Talmudists and the Fathers of the Church were aware of this tradition, and it survives in the skulls and bones placed at the foot of the crucifix. The Evangelists are not opposed to it, inasmuch as they speak of one and not of many skulls. (Luke, Mark, John, loc. cit.)

    from this

    For some reason I am relic curious.
