Saint Christopher (Greek: Ἅγιος Χριστόφορος, Ágios Christóforos) is venerated by Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians as a martyr killed in the reign of the 3rd-century Roman Emperor Decius (reigned 249–251) or alternatively under the Roman Emperor Maximinus II Dacian (reigned 308–313).
He is the saint of protection and many people wear St. Christopher medallions for this reason.
