The 12 Apostles: The Meaning Behind Their Names, How They Died, and Where Their Relics Are Located



Saint Bartholomew 

Bartholomew comes from Bartholomaios, the Greek form of an Aramaic name meaning son of Talmai. According to tradition, he preached in several countries, including India, where he translated the Gospel of Matthew for believers. In one account, “impatient idolaters” beat Bartholomew and then crucified him. In another account, he was flayed alive and then beheaded. His remains can be found in Saint Bartholomew Church in Rome.
