St Bartholomew

Information

St. Bartholomew is identified by some as the 'Nathaniel' of the Gospels. St Matthew listed him with Philip as one of the first apostles chosen by Christ. Quite possibly he preached the Gospel in Armenia. It is believed that he converted the King of that country and then was ordered to be skinned alive by the king's brother, and then beheaded. St. Bartholomew is the Patron Saint of Plasterers and of the Sick.
