Agios Dimitrios, Myrovlitis (26 October)

Agios Dimitrios (280 – 284 AD) was the son of an aristocratic family in Thessaloniki. At the age of 22 he rose through the ranks of the Roman army to the rank of chiliarch.  When Diocletian was emperor, he became a Christian and was imprisoned for ignoring Emperor Diocletian’s decree “on the denial of Christianity.”

In prison he gave his blessing to Nestor, defeated in a duel the terrible gladiator of the time Lyaeus, causing the wrath of the emperor, who ordered them both to be killed. The body of the Saint was buried in the place of martyrdom and myrrh gushed, hence the nickname of Myrovlitos.

Today Agios Dimitrios is honored as the patron saint of Thessaloniki.
