Untitled[edit]

Tradition states his sons Rufus and Alexander became missionaries. "Legend has it..." Why is this phrase always the lead-in to something utterly unexpected? "Missionaries?" "Yes. Missionaries!" ...and now Miss Tuttle will accompany us on the harmonium...

Sainthood?[edit]

The article currently describes him as a "saintly" Christian. Is he a saint and if so why is he not a member of the category Saints. 74.132.209.231 03:36, 15 July 2006 (UTC)


Jacobovici claims, in an interview about his and Cameron's documentary about the Jesus tomb, that the tomb or remains of Simon of Cyrene have been found.. but that it just wasn't reported by the media. Has anyone heard anything about this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Matt2h (talkcontribs)

Cultural reference[edit]

Not sure whether it should be mentioned in the article, but there's a reference to the Simon of Cyrene story in "Life of Brian"... AnonMoos 11:20, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Peter[edit]

Is Simon not Peter? There should be mention of Peter in this article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.156.60.53 (talk) 04:37, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Peter also went by "Simon", but was not this Simon of Cyrene. Many people share given names. —ADavidB 15:03, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Simeon called Niger[edit]

I wonder if these may be the same person. Is there any tradition or theory that would suggest this, and which could be put in? 31.52.104.93 (talk) 17:53, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
