Peter was born in 1205 in the Italian city of Verona to heretical parents. He was nevertheless educated at a Catholic school and later attended the University of Bologna. During his studies, he entered the Dominican Order and developed into a great preacher. In 1234, he was appointed inquisitor of Northern Italy. Peter of Verona was murdered by members of a heretical sect in 1252 while returning from Como and canonised one year after, despite his parent's belief.
