Antique Lithography with Saint Charalambos

At this icon we have the representation of Saint Charalambos who was an early Christian priest in Magnesia, a region of Asia Minor. He lived during the reign of Septimius Severus (193–211), when Lucian was Proconsul of Magnesia. It is believed that at the time of his martyrdom in 202, Charalambos was 113 years old. When the news of his preaching reached the authorities of the area, the proconsul Lucian and military commander Lucius, the saint was arrested and brought to trial, where he confessed his faith in Christ. Despite his advanced age, he was tortured mercilessly. It is said that the Saint gave up his soul to God even before the executioner had laid his sword to his neck.
