Saint Martin


San Martín y el mendigo (1597-1600) by El Greco

Saint Martin was born in Hungary, educated in Italy and became a Christian in France, where he was bishop of Tours. St. Martin was the uncle of Saint Patrick, the great apostle of Ireland. He died in the year 397 and his feast day is November 11. 

Saint Martin is best known for the story of using his military sword to cut his cloak in two, to give half to a beggar dressed only in rags in the depth of winter.
