Though he is considered one of the most important figures in early Christianity and the "rock" of the Roman Catholic Church, Saint Peter is also one of the most puzzling characters in history. In the fascinating documentary, DAVID SUCHET IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ST. PETER airing Thursday, December 24, 2015 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV, beloved actor David Suchet (Agatha Christie's Poirot) traces the footsteps of St. Peter in a quest to determine how a simple Galilean fisherman went on to become the first Pope.

Beginning at the disciple’s humble Galilean birthplace and traveling to the cities of Jerusalem and Rome, Suchet uncovers the story behind Peter's remarkable post-resurrection turnaround and learns about the vital role Peter played in keeping the early church from splintering. Along the way, he reveals surprising new discoveries and theories about the man who shaped a faith that came to dominate western civilization.
