The Acts of Peter and Paul is a late text from the New Testament apocrypha, thought to date from after the 4th century. An alternate version with variances in the introductory part of the text exists named the Passion of Peter and Paul.

The text is framed as the tale of Paul's journey from the island of Guadomelete to Rome, assigning Peter as Paul's brother. It also describes the death of Paul by beheading, an early church tradition. The text also contains a letter purporting to be from Pilate.

The work appears to have been based on the Acts of Peter, with the addition of Paul's presence where before it was only Peter's.
