The aim of this article is to analyze Francisco Suárez’s position regarding Peter’s power of government and his successors in the Third Part of the Defensio fidei. The author wrote this work to refute the oath of fidelity of James I and his apology. Doctor Eximio did a complete exposition of the Catholic doctrine of this institution, basing his study mainly on Sacred Scripture and the Fathers of the Church. The conclusions he rea-ched turned out to be valid nowadays.
