Saint Matthew



Matthew comes from the Greek Matthaios for the Hebrew name Mattityahu, meaning gift of Yahweh. According to tradition the tax collector-turned-missionary was martyred in Ethiopia, where he was stabbed in the back by an assassin sent by King Hertacus, after he criticized the king’s morals. His remains can be found in the Cathedral of Salerno in Salerno, Italy.
