The Basilica of Saint Peter, officially known in Italian as the Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano and commonly known in English as St. Peter's Basilica, is located within the Vatican City in Rome. Named after the apostle Peter, who is traditionally considered the first Pope, it occupies a "unique position" as one of the holiest sites and as "the greatest of all churches of Christendom".

St. Peter's Basilica in In the Presence of Mine Enemies[]

The dome of Berlin's Great Hall, built in 1950 to celebrate Germany's victory over Britain and Russia in the Second World War, reached 220 meters into the sky and was more than 250 meters across, large enough to fit sixteen St. Peter's cathedrals inside.[1]

St. Peter's Basilica in "Under St. Peter's"[]

A secret chamber deep inside St. Peter's was the prison of Jesus, who'd been transformed into a vampire shortly after crucifixion. The Order of the Pipistrelle guarded this chamber, which was visited by each new Pope, who gave some blood to feed the vampire.[2]
