What is a Tanner?
     The occupation of tanning was considered disreputable in antiquity, especially by the Jews. Accordingly, tanners were obliged to carry on their trade outside of the town, as is the case in the East at the present day. Peter showed his independence in stopping with Simon, a tanner, at Joppa. Acts 9:43.
