St. Lucian of Antioch
Theologian, scholar, and martyr praised by Sts. John Chrysostom and Jerome. A scriptural scholar from Samosata, Lucian studied at Edessa and was ordained at Antioch as a presbyter. He authored many works on the Bible and Church doctrine, and his writings were so respected that St. Jerome used Lucian for his own scholarly endeavors. Little has survived of Lucian's works, but tradition declares that the second of the four creeds promulgated by the Council of Antioch was composed by Lucian. He also supposedly established the famed theological school of Antioch which claimed among its famous members Arius and Eusebius of Nicomedia. Lucian was arrested in Nicomedia, and was racked and put to death in the last persecutions of the Church by Roman officials.
