According to traditional belief, Saint Sebastian was a Christian saint and martyr killed during the Diocletianic Persecution of Christians. Though it did not kill him, Saint Sebastian was initially tied to a post or tree and shot with arrows.
It is believed that Saint Irene of Rome rescued and healed him. Then after his recovery, he went to Roman emperor Diocletian to warn him about his sins and was clubbed to death. He is to this day regarded with great respect in the Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church.
