Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Tomb of Saint Peter: A Representative and Annotated Bibliography of the Excavations presents the table of contents, preface and a list of abbreviations. The sources of Peter and his death are sufficient and satisfying when compared with those of other persons and events in the early Church-including St. Paul and others. Though one would have good reason to think that the old question of Peter's Roman sojourn and martyrdom had been terminated, this has not been the case. Despite the positive attitude in recent times of many Protestant theologians to favor the traditional view (Harnack, Lietzmann), some have again voiced themselves against it.
