Q&A: Paul's Martyrdom

Paul's Martyrdom

Question

How did Paul die?

Answer

According to church tradition as recorded in the Acts of Peter and Paul, Paul died a martyr's death, beheaded beneath a stone pile at Aquae Salviae near the third milestone of the Ostian Way. He was executed probably in A.D. 65 or shortly thereafter, and probably in an incident involved with the Neronic persecution of the Christians in Rome.
