Memorial

Profile

Pagan physician in service of Roman Emperor Valens. Sometime between 364 and 378, an angel appeared to Domèce and rebuked him for his abuse of Christians. He was led to a cave hermit on Mount Qouros in Armenia where he learned about Christianity, converted, was baptized, and stayed to live as a hermit for over 30 years. As a physician, he accepted all patients, including animals, healing many, including the healing of sciatica by prayer.
