St Mark





Was born of Jewish parents of the tribe of Levi. He is supposed to have

been converted to christianity by Peter, whom he served as an

amanuensis, and under whose inspection he wrote his gospel in the Greek

language. Mark was dragged to pieces by the people of Alexandria, at the

great solemnity of Serapis their idol, ending his life under their

merciless hands.
