Saint Luke is the author of the Gospel According to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles. He was also a companion to St. Paul the Apostle. While information about his life is not widely known, the New Testament mentions him briefly and refers to him as a physician. Thus, he is the Patron Saint of Doctors and Artists. He is believed to have been a martyr, reportedly having been hanged from an olive tree.
