Did Peter the Apostle found the Church of Rome?
The current revision says so, but according to this source:
- St. Peter was never a pope of Rome, indeed he was not a bishop at all, but an Apostle. This is the early tradition of the Church of Rome itself and therefore remains the tradition of the rest of the Orthodox Church today. Moreover St. Peter founded not the Church of Rome, but the Church of Antioch. The Church in Rome was founded by St. Paul. This is clear to any reader of the Acts of the Apostles and the Epistle of St. Paul to the Romans.
Was St. Paul the founder? --Filius Rosadis 06:08, September 29, 2007 (PDT)
