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

Paul the Apostle, commonly known as Saint Paul and also known by his Jewish name Saul of Tarsus was an apostle - though not one of the Twelve Apostles - who taught the gospel of the Christ to the first century world.

Paul is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age and in the mid-30s to the mid-50s AD he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. He took advantage of his status as both a Jew and a Roman citizen to minister to both Jewish and Roman audiences. According to writings in the New Testament and prior to his conversion, Paul was dedicated to persecuting the early disciples of Jesus in the area of Jerusalem.
