Bartholomew the Apostle, Saint. One of the twelve apostles. His name appears only in the listings of the Twelve in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Acts. Many believe he is the Nathanael mentioned in John. Tradition, based on the writings of Jerome and Eusebius,  

(skinned) alive, then crucified, and finally decapitated for his Christian belief. Bartholomew is commemorated in the Episcopal calendar of the church year on Aug. 24.
