Abstract The purpose of this research is to study the presence of the Apostle Paul in the Letters of Ignatius of Antioch. Ignatius names explicitly Paul two times in his Letters: Ephesians 12:2 and Romans 4:3. In the first text the bishop of Antioch ascribes to Paul three significant attributes, which are special object of study in this paper: the sanctified (ὁ ἡγιασμένος); the approved (ὁ μεμαρτυρημένος); worthy of blessing (ἀξιομακάριστος). Ignatius, moreover, looks at Paul as a model to imitate in his journey to Rome in order to be martyrized. The Author, besides, inquires particularly into two very singular Ignatian expressions: ʻ (You are)fellow initiates(συμμύσται) of Paul' and ʻMay I be found in (literally under) his (Paul's) footstepsʼ (οὗ γένοιτό μοι ὑπο τά ἲχνη εὑρεθῆναι). In the second text Ignatius attributes to Paul (together with Peter) the characteristic and meaningful title of ʻApostleʼ (ἀπόστολος) in the fullest sense of the term, reserved for the twelve Apostels.
