Extract from  The Golden Legend:  The Life of St. Erasmus: “The holy man, St. Erasmus, was come of noble and of great kindred, and he was not only gentle by his birth but also in deed and conditions. In the time that Diocletian the emperor reigned, which was a great persecutor of Christ’s people, then came this holy man St. Erasmus in the land of Campania, . . ., and there this holy man preached to the people the word of God, and taught unto them the Christian faith, and he baptized them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Then was this holy man chosen and made bishop of all the land of Campania, and preached and taught the people how they should serve God and love him, and avoid sin. See picture of St.Elmo (Pinacoteca).
