Saint Paul, the Apostle, originally named Saul of Tarsus (born around 4 BC) was one of the leaders of the first generation of Christians, often considered to be the second most important person in the history of Christianity. In his own day, although he was a major figure within the very small Christian movement, he also had many enemies and detractors, and his contemporaries probably did not accord him as much respect as they gave Peter and James. and so he struggled to establish his own worth and authority. His surviving letters, however, have had enormous influence on subsequent Christianity and secure his place as one of the greatest religious leaders of all time.
Your medal comes with a silver steel split-ring through the top loop so it is ready to use.
If you are thinking of wearing this medal as a pendant, you can see good quality stainless steel neck chains here that are a good color match.
