      St. Andrew-Preached in Istanbul, Macedonia and Greece. In Greece, the Governor was angered by the Andrew's preaching and the conversion of his own family to Christianity. He ordered Andrew to renounce his faith. When Andrew resisted, he ordered Andrew crucified. He was tied to an X-shaped cross with ropes but Andrew kept preaching. He was able to convert many more just before dying after suffering for three days. Parts of his remains are in Constantinople, Scotland, & his skull is in Greece.

    Andrew was the brother of Simon Peter. Eusebius in his church history 3,1 quotes Origen as saying Andrew preached in Scythia. The Chronicle of Nestor adds that he preached along the Black Sea and the Dnieper river as far as Kiev, and from there he traveled to Novgorod. Hence, he became a patron saint of Ukraine, Romania and Russia. According to tradition, he founded the See of Byzantium (Constantinople) in AD 38, installing Stachys as bishop.
