Saint Peter of Verona  1205–1252. Feast Day: April 29. Patron of: Inquisitors.

The son of Cathar heretics, he converted after hearing Saint Dominic preach. He joined the Dominicans and, as the Inquisitor for Northern Italy, did much to silence heresy. He was murdered for this and while he was dying wrote with his own blood on the ground, “Credo in unum Deo.” “I believe in one God…” The dagger he was killed with is in his back. He is silencing heresy while clutching his martyr’s palms and the closed book of secret knowledge.
