(Greek: lover of horses)

Apostle. Native of Bethsaida on Lake Genesareth, like Peter and Andrew. He occupies fifth place in the list of the twelve Apostles. The legends concerning him are uncertain, confusing him with Philip the Deacon; however the general opinion is that he, with his two daughters, died at Hierapolis. The Fourth Gospel mentions him at the miracle of the loaves and fishes (John 6), and again in conversation with Christ (John 14), portraying him as a shy, naive, sober-minded man. Emblems: crucified man; a dragon. Relics in Church of the Apostles, Rome. Feast, Roman Calendar, May 1,.
