Acts of Apostles

He was not one of the twelve first disciples of Christ. His original name was Saul. In his youth, he was a Jewish zealot and a ferocious persecutor of Christians. After judging the preacher Stephen he went to Damascus to find Christ's disciples and forcibly bring them to Jerusalem. But on his way he was struck by the miraculous light and he lost his eyesight for three days (Blindness of Saul). It was then that God appeared to Saul and told him to believe. The eyesight returned to him and he baptized, changing his name to Paul. His apostolic mission was to create many Christian communities in Asia Minor and on the Balkans. Under the Emperor Nero, Paul was beheaded in Rome.
Saint Paul wrote many texts, including fourteen epistles that make an important part of the New Testament.

Attributes: sword.
