The Legend of Saint Peter



“The Peter of the Acts and of the later literature is a legendary person; of this there can be no doubt. His portrait is so shot-through with mythical features that it is quite impossible now to isolate any ‘historical kernel’ from the surviving reports.”

An appendix by Frank R. Zindler contains English translations of all biblical passages cited, as well as English versions of all citations from church fathers and classical Greco-Roman authors.

About the Author

Arthur Drews, a German skeptic and philosopher of the early 20th century, is mainly known for his magisterial opus The Christ Myth, which argued forcefully for the non-historicity of Jesus. In the present work, Drews does the same for a character who came to occupy a central position in Catholic Christianity.
