Saint Paul

Paul the Apostle (Greek: Παῦλος Paulos, c.5 – c. 67), original name Saul of Tarsus (Greek: Σαῦλος Saulos), was a Christian missionary who took the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age. In the mid-30s to the mid-50s, he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. Paul used his status as both a Jew and a Roman citizen in his ministry to both Jewish and Roman audiences.

Famous quotes containing the words paul and/or saint:

    That for which Paul lived and died so gloriously; that for which Jesus gave himself to be crucified; the end that animated the thousand martyrs and heroes who have followed his steps, was to redeem us from a formal religion, and teach us to seek our well-being in the formation of the soul.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Troll the bowl, the jolly nut-brown bowl,
    And here, kind mate, to thee!
    Let’s sing a dirge for Saint Hugh’s soul,
    And down it merrily.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)
