Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu

Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu

The Church of Saint Peter in Gallicantu is believed to be the House of Caiphas where Jesus will be scourged by the Sanhedrin the night before his crucifixion. The church’s name comes from ’galli’, which means ’a rooster,’ and ’cantu’ which means ’to call out or crow.’ This is a reference to Mark 14:30 where Jesus informs Peter that he will deny him three times ’before the cock crows twice.’
