What religion is St. Peter the founder of?


Wiki User

Saint Peter is believed to be the first pope of the Catholicism movement within Christianity.

Roman Catholic Answer

St. Peter was not the founder of any religion, he was the first Vicar of Christ, and the only one appointed by Our Blessed Lord, Himself. So, St. Peter was the first Pope of the Christian Church, although the word Pope was not in use yet. And, believe it or not, there was never a "Catholic movement within Christianity", there has only been Christianity, which has always been Catholic since the first century, when our Blessed Lord, Himself, started it at Pentecost.
