Image of St. Menas

Egyptian martyr, possibly slain at Karm Aba Mina, near Alexandria. An officer in the imperial army of Rome, he resigned when the persecutions of Christians was started. Mennas lived as a recluse in the mountains of Phrygia, but he then proclaimed his Christianity, suffering beheading as a resuIt. His remains were enshrined, and his cult as a warrior saint became popular in the Middle Ages. He is always depicted with a camel. His cult is now confined to local calendars.
