One of several early Christian Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles, the Acts of Andrew narrates the exploits and death of one of the disciples in the years following Jesus' resurrection. According to the canonical Gospels, Andrew was Peter's brother. The Acts of Andrew was popular in Antiquity. It was mentioned in a Manichaean psalmbook and by Christian authors as early as Origen. It was dismissed as heretical by church historian Eusebius.
