After the death and resurrection of Jesus, Saint Jude, the brother of James the Less and a cousin of Christ, traveled throughout Mesopotamia for a period of ten years preaching and converting many to Christianity.
He died a martyr’s death as tradition tells us he was clubbed to death and his head was then shattered with a broad ax. Sometime after his death, Jude’s body was brought to Rome and placed in a crypt in Saint Peter’s Basilica.
