Storyboard Description

Saint Sebastian

Storyboard Text

  • According to his legend, Saint Sebastian was born in Gaul, went to Rome, and joined (c. 283) the army of the emperor Carinus, later becoming a captain under Diocletian.
  • When it was discovered that he was a Christian who had converted many soldiers, Sebastian was ordered to be killed by arrows.
  • The archers left him for dead, but a Christian widow nursed him back to health.
  • He then presented himself before Diocletian, who condemned him to death by beating.
  • His body, thrown into a sewer, was found by another pious woman, who dreamed that Sebastian told her to bury his remains near the catacombs.
  • His relics are believed to be in the Basilica of San Sebastiano on the Appian Way, to which many pilgrims were attracted in the Middle Ages.
