Saint Luke - Evangelist (First Century).
Saint Luke, a physician at Antioch and a painter, was also an excellent rhetorician in Greek, his native language. 'The Acts of the Apostles' were written by the Evangelist as a sequel to his Gospel, bringing the history of the Church down to the first imprisonment of Saint Paul in Rome, in the year 64. Saint Hippolyte says he was crucified in Greece. His mortal remains were transferred to the Church of the Apostles. Some of his relics remain in the Greek monastery of Mount Athos.
