EWTN Catholic Q&A
Zechariah and Elizabeth and St. John the Baptist
Question from PM on 10-28-2012:

Do we know how Zechariah died ? Was it martyrdom in the temple during the time of Herod, and if so, did St. Elizabeth hide with St. John the Baptist in the hill country of Judah ? I read this in FMA FOCUS, Franciscan Mission Associates from Mt. Vernon, New York, Nov. 2012/VOL 46,NO 2 ...They say it tells us this in tradition. Thank you for your help.

Dear PM,

I was not aware of that tradition. Perhaps some experts are.
