Holy Artemije was a great general in the first Christian Emperor Constantine the Great, had a high position in the court, and was the governor of Egypt, which at that time was under the rule of the Roman Empire.

Being a fervent Christian and fulfilling the will of Caesar, Artemy put a lot of effort to ensure that the Orthodox faith spread in the land of Egypt.

However, after the death of Emperor Constantine came to power, the ruler of Julian, who was called the Apostate because he tried to return to the worship of pagan gods. Persecution against Christians began again, as under the Emperor Diocletian.

When in Antioch Caesar ordered the torture of two Orthodox bishops, because they would not deny Christ, Artemy stood up for them, and accused the governor of cruelty and betrayal, and he predicted swift destruction. For this he was imprisoned and tortured.

Tradition says that in prison Holy Artemia is the Lord Himself, in order to strengthen him in the trials. Without a murmur Artemije received the most cruel mockery of themselves, but God was faithful to the end and was martyred.

Soon after, the prediction came true Holy great martyr. Julian was defeated, and in the reign of Emperor Christian. And the Holy Artemije since venerated by the Church as the patron of soldiers.
