Image of St. Eustace

Martyr with Theophistes, Agapitus, and Theophistus. Eustace was a Roman military officer called Placida. He converted after having a vision in Italy of a stag with a crucifix between its antlers. Tradition states that he was separated from his family and recalled to the army, becoming famous for a battle. When he and his family reunited, he refused to take part in the pagan ceremony and they were roasted to death. Eustace is also called Eustathius.
