Paul was born in Turkey around the year 5 or 10 BC. A Roman citizen of Jewish descent, he settled in Jerusalem to continue his studies and work as a scribe, under the tutelage of Gamaliel. He was confronted by the first Christians he persecuted. He took part in the stoning of Etienne. However, Christ appeared to him on his journey to Damascus. Upset, he fell and lost his sight. Three days later, a disciple of Jesus baptized him in Damascus, which put an end to his blindness. He became the apostle of the Gentiles and dedicated his life to evangelization. Accused of having set fire to the city of Rome in 64, he was arrested and executed around AD 67.

His character :

Saul will demand his independence very early. His adventurous spirit and thirst for knowledge are the basis of his desire for freedom. His head full of ideas, he feels the need to detach himself from the world to better exploit his overflowing imagination. Endowed with a singular sense of humor, Saul knows how to animate discussions and delay arguments. Moreover, he does not lack qualities of heart. Generosity and mutual help are the watchwords of his daily life.
