Mosaic Tile of an Warrior Saint.

It was difficult to find one for not much is known about them. But I felt if I kept looking someone was bold enough to have a portrait of one. I do not know who the

person is nor the artists. old-moasic-tile-of-a-warrior-saint

The halo around the head tells me what the person is. I did learn that they and many popes and kings often did not get along very well. Joan of Arc is perhaps the most famous of Christian Warrior saints. I was surprised to find this picture for his uniform looks a lot how I described Ana’s uniform.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I searched high and low for a portrait of one but was unable to find anything other than medieval knights and from what I read a medieval knight is not a warrior saint, neither were the Knight Templar. The Knight Templar respected these mysterious men and women and even based their code of honor off of them but they were not the same thing.

    A warrior saint did not do battle on a horse for the sake of conquering land or wealth for a king or the pope as knights did. So I was at lost in finding much else about them. They are unlike the Muslim version of a warrior saint. They do not perform jihads nor go to war for personal glory or wealth. So I can see some kings and popes had a problem with them and eliminated knowledge about them. I suspect Vatican is perhaps the only place one may find an in-depth history or accord of them.

    In the early days of Christianity they weren’t uncommon.They were who were fighting the Romans back as to why Christianity did not die out. They were a fearsome but holy sight to behold.
    Yes, you’re right. The Knights Templar copied their code of honor. I guess they were kicking too many kings’ and popes’ behinds as to why records about them are scarce. They were loyal to no political affiliate or nation.

    That’s St.Maurice.

    • Thanks for identifying the relief. Yes, I heard they were common during the early days of Christianity. One of the most famous accounts is where a small group of them held off a Roman legion for three weeks. Giving those thy were protecting enough time to escape and remove themselves from the scene they were caught worshiping.
