The Legend of Saint Peter

The Legend of Saint Peter

THE LEGEND OF SAINT PETER contains a foreword by the translator, Frank R. Zindler; a foreword by the author, Arthur Drews; and 5 chapters: Peter in the New Testament, The mythical background of the Peter figure, Peter and Mithra, Peter in Rome, and Peter, Prince of Apostles.

“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.
