Saint Andrew



Andrew comes from the Greek name andreas, itself derived from the Greek word andreios meaning masculine. Andrew travelled to Patras in western Greece in 69 A.D., where the Roman proconsul Aegeates tried to convince him to forsake Christianity, so that he would not have to execute him.

Not renouncing his faith, Aegeates crucified him to an X shaped cross (the origin of the saltire’s shape), tying him instead of using nails to prolong his suffering. His remains can be found in the Cathedral of Amalfi in Amalfi, Italy.
