Saint Luke was born in Antioch to pagan Greek parents. He was one of the very earliest converts to Christianity. It is thought that he probably traveled as a ship's doctor.
His story and his writings have made him the patron to artists of all kinds: painters, sculptors, stained glass workers, lace makers, goldsmiths, glass makers, bookbinders and more.
The charm illustrates his life as an artist and writer by the quill and book. He is often shown with a winged calf or winged ox showing his devotion to animals as well.
