AIA lecture series: Saint Peter in Rome: A Historian’s Perspective

Join Tyler Lansford on Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. at the CU Natural History Museum for this free lecture! During the early Christian centuries, the tradition that the apostle Peter had ministered and died in Rome formed a leading component of Rome's claim to ecclesiastical primacy within the church universal. As early as the second century, the Christian community of Rome identified a site where Peter was believed to be buried: progressively monumentalized, the memorial Petri today lies directly below the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica.
