It is not known precisely when or where
St. Blaise lived, but according to tradition
he was a bishop of Sebaste, Armenia, in
the early part of the fourth century, and
suffered martyrdom under the Roman emperor Licinius, who had commanded the
governor of the province, one Agricolaus,
to prevent the spread of Christianity in his
territory. After this edict had been promulgated, Blaise
fled to the mountains and lived in a cave frequented by
wild beasts. He used his skill to heal the animals that he
found wounded or sick, and when the emperor's hunters,
bent on collecting wild animals for the royal games, discovered him in this cave, they carried him off to Agricolaus as a special prize.
