Apostle Saint Andrew, the founder of the Eastern church was the brother of the Apostle Saint Peter. While Peter set up shop in Rome, the communications hub of the Roman empire, brother Andrew set up shop in Byzantium/Constantinople/Istanbul on the Bosporus, the gateway to the Black Sea and the Orient.
