The Apostle of the Gentiles was St Paul. Originally involved in persecuting Christians, he experienced a conversion to Christianity when a vision of the resurrected Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus. After this, he was heavily involved in missionary activities and converted many people, particularly Gentiles. However, one might have assumed that Rev. Wringhim would be reluctant to share his fate: his preaching against Jewish traditions caused so much controversy that the Romans beheaded him.
