St. Barlaam of Antioch Biography

St. Barlaam of Antioch was an uneducated Christian worker. Imprisoned for his confidence during the oppression of Diocletian.

Brought to preliminary in 304, he was scourged, racked, tormented, and requested to deny his confidence; he cannot.

With an end goal to make it look as if Barlaam were making an incense offering to a symbol, the judge had the detainee’s hand shrouded in incense, at that point held over the coals of a brazier.

He felt that when Barlaam winced from the agony, the incense would fall in the flame, he could proclaim that Barlaam had made penance, and he could be turned free for instance.

Rather, Barlaam never jumped. At the point when his whole hand had consumed off, the judge surrendered and had him killed.
