Together with Saint Paul, Saint Peter was a chief of the Apostles and the first bishop of Antioch and of Rome.
Originally a fisherman, Peter was called by Christ and witnessed his Transfiguration. After denying Christ and being restored, Peter preached on Pentecost. He served an important leadership role in the Church and authored two of the epistles of the New Testament. St. Peter was crucified upside-down in Rome in AD 67.
He and Saint Paul are celebrated together as the Chiefs of the Apostles on June 29.
Clark's Apostles series

This is the second icon I've purchased from here by Clark (the first was of the Apostle Paul), and they are both very well made. What I really appreciate about the Clark icons is the clarity and cleanness of his images. The rest of the production is also excellent!
