(Saint) Martyr (July 27) (4th century) A physician by profession and reckoned with Saint Luke the Patron Saint of medical men. His Acts, as handed down to us, are of very doubtful authority. It is certain that he suffered martyrdom at the Imperial residence of Nicomedia between A.D. 303 and A.D. 305. He has always been greatly honoured throughout Christendom, more especially by the Greeks.
