Saint Peter - Apostle - The First Pope
According to Christian tradition,
Peter was crucified in Rome
under Emperor Nero. He is
traditionally counted as the
first Bishop of Rome—or
pope—and also by Eastern
Christian tradition as the
first Patriarch of Antioch.
The ancient Christian churches
all venerate Peter as a major
saint and as the founder of the
Church of Antioch and the
Roman Church, but differ in their
attitudes regarding the authority
of his present-day successors
(the primacy of the Bishop of Rome).
According to Catholic teaching, in
Matthew 16:18 Jesus promised
Peter a special position in the Church.
