Sir Thomas More( 7 February 1478– 6 July 1535) Known to Roman Catholics as Saint Thomas More. Was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman and noted Renaissance humanist. He was an important councilor to Henry VIII and Lord Chancellor from October 1529 to 16 May 1532. More opposed the Protestant Reformation, in particular the theology of Martin Luther and William Tyndale whose books he burned and whose followers he persecuted. More also wrote Utopia. Published in 1516, about the political system of an ideal and imaginary island nation. More later opposed the King's separation from the Catholic Church and refused to accept him as Supreme ... moreHead of the Church of England because it disparaged papal authority and Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon. Tried for treason, More was convicted on perjured testimony and beheaded. Pope Pius XI canonized More in 1935 as a martyr of the schism that separated the Church of England from Rome; Pope John Paul II in 2000 declared More the"heavenly Patron of Statesmen and Politicians" Since 1980, the Church of England has remembered More liturgically as a Reformation martyr.

Normal 0 21 false false false DE X-NONE X-NONE Saint Helena or Saint Helen(Latin: Flavia Iulia Helena Augusta; c. 250– c. 330) was the consort of the Roman emperor Constantius Chlorus and the mother of the emperor Constantine the Great. An important figure in the history of Christianity. She is traditionally credited with a pilgrimage to Syria Palaestina, during which she discovered the True cross of Jesus's cruzifixion. She is revered as a saint by the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, the Roman Catholic, the Lutheran, and the Anglican churches. Helena's birthplace is not known with certainty. The 6th-century historian Procopius ... moreis the earliest authority for the statement that Helena was a native of Drepanum, in the province of Bithynia in Asia Minor. Her son Constantine renamed the city"Helenopolis" after her death around 330, which supports the belief that the city was her birthplace. The Byzantinist Cyril Mango has argued that Helenopolis was refounded to strengthen the communication network around his new capital in Constantinople, and was renamed simply to honor Helena, not to mark her birthplace. There was also a Helenopolis in Palestine and a Helenopolis in Lydia. These cities, and the province of Helenopontus in the Diocese Pontus, were probably both named after Constantine's mother. G.K. Chesterton in his book'A Short History of England' writes that she was considered a Briton by the British, a tradition noted byGeoffrey of Monmouth, whose 12th century Historia Regum Britanniae reports that Helena was a daughter of the British King Coel. The bishop and historian Eusebius of Caesarea states that she was about 80 on her return from Palestine. Since that journey has been dated to 326–28. Helena was probably born in 248 or 250. Little is known of her early life. Fourth-cen

Please have a look at further pictures. Martin of Tours(Latin: Sanctus Martinus Turonensis; 316– November 8. 397) was a Bishop of Tours, whose shrine in France became a famous stopping-point for pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostella. Around his name much legendary material accrued, and he has become one of the most familiar and recognizable Christian saints. As he was born in what is now Szombathely, Hungary, spent much of his childhood in Pavia, Italy, and lived most of his adult life in France, he is considered a spiritual bridge across Europe. His life was recorded by a contemporary. The hagiographer Sulpicius Severus. Some of the accounts of his ... moretravels may have been interpolated into his vita to validate early sites of his cult. He is a patron saint of soldiers. He is the patron saint of beggars. France, geese(because their migration coincides with his feast) infantrymen, innkeepers, vintners(because his feast falls just after the late grape harvest) and tailors and wool-weavers(because he divided his cloak) Martin is most generally portrayed on horseback dividing his cloak with the beggar. His emblem in English art is often that of a goose, whose annual migration is about late Autum. Catholic German Artist and Sculptor Egino Günter Weinert(March 3.1920– September 4, 2012) began his artistic training after entering the monastery of the Benedictine Missionaries. He left the order before taking final vows.

Saint Birgitta(Swedish: den heliga Birgitta or Birgitta Birgersdotter) Was a mystic and saint, and founder of the Bridgettines nuns and monks after the death of her husband of twenty years. She was also the mother of Catherine of Vadstena. She is one of the six patron saints of Europe, together with Benedict of Nursia, Saints Cyrill and Methodius, Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein. In 1651 the Brigitta Chapel was erected in Vienna, and in 1900 the new district Brigittenau was founded. In October 1, 1999 Pope John Paul II named St Bridget as a patron saint of Europe. Her feast day is celebrated ... moreon 23 July, the day of her death. Her feast was not in the Tridentine Calendar, but was later inserted in the Roman Catholic calendar of saints in 1623 for celebration on 7 October, the day she was canonized by Pope Boniface IX in the year 1391. Five years later, her feast was moved to 8 October(although the Church in Sweden celebrates it on the 7th) where it remained until the revision of the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints in 1969, when it was set on the date currently used. Some continue to use the earlier Genral Roman Calendar as in 1954, the General Roman Calendar of Pope Pius XII, and the General Roman Calendar of 1962. The Third Order of St. Francis includes her feast day on its Calendar of Saints on same day as the general Church, honoring her as a member of the Order.

Vintage german item: Bronze Plaque SAINT CHRISTOPHER(german: Heiliger Christophorus) Saint Christopher(Greek: Ἅγιος Χριστόφορος. Ágios Christóforos) is venerated by several Christian denominations as a martyr killed in the reign of the 3rd-century Roman Emperor Decius(reigned 249–251) or alternatively under the Roman Emperor Maximinus II Dacian(reigned 308–313)There are several legends associated with the life and death of Saint Christopher which first appeared in Greece and had spread to France by the 9th century. The 11th-century bishop and poet, Walter of Speyer, gave one version, but the most popular variations originated from the 13th-century Golden Legend. According to the legendary account of his life Christopher was initially called Reprobus.He was a Canaanite 5 cubits(7.5 feet(2.3 m) tall and with a fearsome face. While ... moreserving the king of Canaan. He took it into his head to go and serve"the greatest king there was" He went to the king who was reputed to be the greatest, but one day he saw the king cross himself at the mention of the devil. On thus learning that the king feared the devil, he departed to look for the devil. He came across a band of marauders, one of whom declared himself to be the devil, so Christopher decided to serve him. But when he saw his new master avoid a wayside cross and found out that the devil feared Christ, he left him and enquired from people where to find Christ. He met a hermit who instructed him in the Christian faith. Christopher asked him how he could serve Christ. When the hermit suggested fasting and prayer, Christopher replied that he was unable to perform that service. The hermit then suggested that because of his size and strength Christopher could serve Christ by assisting people to cross a dangerous river, where they were perishing in the attempt. The hermit promised that this service would be pleasing to Christ. After Christopher had performed this service for some time. A little child asked him to take him across the river.

Was Bishop of Augsburg and a leader of the Roman Catholic Church in Germany. He was the first saint to be canonized. Ulrich was born in 890 at Kyburg, Zurich in present-day Switzerland. He was the son of Hupald, Count of Dillingen(d. 909) and Dietpirch of Swabia(also known as Theoberga) and was connected with the dukes of Alamannia. His maternal grandfather was Burchard I. Burchard was reportedly the second husband of Liutgard, who was the widow of Louis the Younger. The siblings of Dietpirch included ... moreBurchard II, Duke of Swabia. This family was connected with the dukes of Alamannia and the Ottonian dynasty. An unnamed sister served as a nun in Buchau. As a child he was sickly and lived in simplicity and poverty. As was customary, his parents presented him as an oblate(offering) to the church while he was still a child. When he was old enough to learn, he was sent to the monastery of St. Gall, where he proved to be an excellent scholar. While there, he became friends with St. Wiborada, a recluse who lived near the monastery and foretold that her young friend was destined to become a bishop. He resolved to enter the priesthood, but was in doubt whether to enter the Benedictine Abbey of St. Gall or to become a secular priest. He was sent before April 910, for his further training to a kinsman, Adalbero, Bishop of Augsburg, who made him a chamberlain. On Adalbero's death(28 April 910) Ulrich returned home. The Duke of Swabia presented him at the court of Henry I of Germany, where Ulrich became one of household retainers. Through the influence of his maternal uncle. Burchard II, Duke of Swabia, and other relatives, Ulrich was appointed bishop of Augsburg by Henry I

Particularly in Western Europe through Latin translations. He is often erroneously considered the first monk, but as his biography and other sources make clear, there were many ascetics before him. Anthony was, however, the first known ascetic going into the wilderness(about A.D. 270–271) a geographical move that seems to have contributed to his renown. Accounts of Anthony enduring supernatural temptation during his sojourn in the Libyan Desert inspired the often-repeated subject of the Temptation of St. Anthony in Western art and literature.
