Chapter Summary

The canonical Paul of the Pastoral and the Petrine Epistles was by no means the only legitimate continuation of Paul's legacy. Recent work on the cultural setting of Paul's world and the early Christian apocryphal literature outside the New Testament has led to a further important insight. The search for an early veneration of Saint Paul at the places of his reported itinerary has yielded surprisingly little evidence. The entire story is told in the New Testament continuation of the popular work which was added to the Old Testament narration by Peter of Poitiers and was included in most manuscripts. A major new factor in the world of the 13th century was the rapid ascendancy of the mendicant orders, Franciscans and Dominicans, as the avant-garde of a renewal movement in the Church at large.
