Saint Paul was beheaded during his imprisonment in Rome in 67 A.D. He converted from Judaism while traveling to Damascus and went on to spread Christianity in several countries.

Afterward, he conducted several missions to areas such as Corinth, Beroea, Athens, Ephesus and Macedonia. He is believed to have written 14 epistles in the New Testament. Saint Paul was imprisoned several times for his work as a missionary, and he was finally beheaded. His feast day is June 29.
