Saint Peter was the important among all the twelve apostles. He was the one who spread Christianity in Rome. He went to Rome. He sent people to all parts of the world to teach Christianity. These people were called Missionaries. Saint Peter even set up a church in Rome which has later become the most famous religious centre of Christians all over the world.

Constantine, the Roman Emperor who lived in the Fourth century declared Christianity as the national religion of Rome. The spread of Christianity made progress in the countries of Rome, Greece, Macedonia and Asia Minor. Many people who belonged to the other religions converted themselves to Christianity due to the preachings of the missionaries.
