Anicetus was Bishop of Rome (now called pope) from about 154 to about 167 (the Vatican's list cites 150 or 157 to 153 or 168). He was a Syrian from Emesa. According to Irenaeus, it was during his pontificate that the aged Polycarp, a disciple of Saint John the Evangelist, visited the Roman Church. Polycarp and Anicetus discussed the celebration of Passover. Polycarp and his Church of Smyrna celebrated the crucifixion on the fourteenth day of Nisan, which coincides with Pesach. The day of the week was not important in the East. On the other hand, the Roman Church celebrated an Easter Passover on Sunday—the weekday of Jesus' resurrection. The two did not agree on a common date, but Anicetus conceeded to Polycarp and the Smyrnan Church the ability to retain the date to which they were accustomed. The controversy was to accelerate and grow heated in the course of the following centuries. ...more on Wikipedia about "Pope Anicetus"

Saint Peter, also known as Peter, Simon ben Jonah/BarJonah, Simon Peter, Cephas and Kepha—original name Simon or Simeon ( Acts 15:14)—was one of the twelve original disciples or apostles of Jesus. His life is prominently featured in the New Testament Gospels. A Galilean fisherman, he (with his brother Andrew) was literally "called" by Jesus to be an apostle. Above all the other disciples, Peter was assigned a leadership role by Jesus ( Matt 16:18; John 21:15–16); and indeed, his supremacy within the early Church is recognized by many. ...more on Wikipedia about "Saint Peter"
