aint Romanus of Antioch and Saint Barulas, Francisco de Zurbarán 1638Size: 22x28 inchesSubstrate: Premium Matte, thickProduct Notes: Martyrs of Syria. Romanus was born in Palestine and served as a deacon in Caesarea and Antioch. He was supposedly arrested and put to death after giving encouragement to Christian prisoners in resisting the demands of the Romans to sacrifice to the gods. Romanus died with a companion, named Barula, a seven-year-old boy. Nothing is known of Barula with any certainty. It is considered likely by scholars that he was actually a Syrian martyr possibly called Bralaha or Barlaam, who became associated with Romanus. Romanus was burned, strangled, and then beheaded.ArtistFrancisco de ZurbaránTitleSaint Romanus of Antioch and Saint BarulasOriginSpainDate1638MediumOil on canvasDimensions246.5 × 160.1 cm (97 × 73 in.)Credit LineGift of Mrs. Chauncey McCormick and Mrs. Richard E.
