This original copper-plate engraving from an early 18th Century Bible is a real beauty. It depicts the Saint Peter. It was engraved by the famous German Engraver Engelhardt Nunzer and published in 1701. It shows Saint Peter in great detail with the keys in his hands and Rome behind him in the background.

Saint Peter (Latin: Petrus), also known as Simon Peter was according to the New Testament one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ, leaders of the early Christian Church. The Roman Catholic Church considers him to be the first Pope, ordained by Jesus in the "Rock of My Church" dialogue in Matthew 16:18. The ancient Christian churches all venerate Peter as a major saint and associate him with founding the Church of Antioch and later the Church in Rome, but differ about the authority of his various successors in present-day Christianity.

According to Catholic belief, Simon Peter was distinguished by Jesus to hold the first place of honor and authority. Also in Catholic belief, Peter was first bishop of Rome. Furthermore, they consider every bishop of Rome to be Peter's successor and the rightful superior of all other bishops. Although Peter never bore the title of "Pope", or "Vicar of Christ", in this sense the Catholic Church considers Peter the first Pope.
