Notes

Summary:
Saint Nicolas suffered much for his faith until the accession of Emperor Constantine and the proclamation of Christianity as the official Imperial religion. His charisma and zealous assault on the Arian heresy made him an exceptional figure. Two episodes from his rich legend stand out: his giving a dowry to three virgins, thus he saved them from a dishonorable fate of prostitutes, and resurrection of three children (or students, or soldiers) chopped into pieces and thrown into a brine tab by an innkeeper, who wanted to serve them as a meat meal to his guests.
