- Additional information
Saint Christopher the Great Martyr came from a semi-barbarian tribe and was called Rebrovos, which means untested, disapproved, damned. He probably lived during the time of the emperor Decius (249 – 251 AD), when in Antioch the Bishop was Saint Hieromartyr Vavilas (honored on September 4). As for the external appearance, he was so ugly, that is why he was called a “dog-face”. According to the tradition of the Greek people, Saint Christopher is considered the protector of fields and vineyards from adverse weather conditions and especially from hail. In modern times, he began to be considered the protector of motorists, hikers and the Army Supply-Transport Corps
