The Basics: A tentmaker by trade, the son of a merchant, Paul (born Saul) initially persecuted the growing Christian minority in the name of the emperor.  Legend has it that he was converted to Christianity on the road to Damascus.  Once converted, he changed his name and began a new ministry in spreading the message of Christianity to the world.  13 epistles in the Christian Scriptures are attributed to Paul.  He was put to death in Rome for his faith.
