St. Peter and St. Paul

Church of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

The iconography is a bit unusual. St. Paul has his sword but he also has a full head of hair. Instead of keys, Peter's attribute is an open book with the words of John 21:17: "He said to him the third time: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved, because he had said to him the third time: Lovest thou me? And he said to him: Lord, thou knowest all things: thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Feed my sheep."
