I am going to go with Saint Paul -- the man who was most instrumental in spreading Christianity after the death of Jesus.

The reason that I say this is because Christianity was a driving force behind the creation of what we now call Western Civilization.  There are other great religions in the world that are seriously important, but Western Civilization has in some ways come to dominate the whole world.

If Western Civilization is dominant, and if Christianity was one of the major base of that civiliation, then a man who was instrumental in spreading Christianity must be a very important man indeed.
