In the early fourth century, a physician named Blaise became the Bishop of Sebastea in Armenia (known today as Silvas, Turkey). “The Acts of St. Blaise” gives us a rare biographical sketch of the man, and it attributes many healings and miracles to him — both during his life and through his intercession after his death. Because these “Acts” are of medieval origin, and many hundreds of years removed from the historical person, many are uncertain of their veracity.
