St. LUKE

Christian Saint

Also known as Luke the Evangelist

New Testament Doctor and best-selling Gospel author

He is the 1st Century author of the third Gospel and its sequel The Acts of the Apostles.

Somewhat too late on the scene to encounter Jesus himself, he became the companion of St. Paul who filled him in on the Godly goings-on.

According to tradition, Luke was a doctor, and thus educated, literate and very interested in miraculous healings. If this is true then he can be regarded as an expert witness.

He is now the Patron Saint of Doctors, Physicians, Surgeons and - slightly grimly - Butchers. He must have done a bit of sketching too as he is Patron of Artists, Writers and Painters.
