      Saint Nicholas was the Bishop of Myra (the city now known as Demre, Turkey) born during the third century AD and died in AD. According to the Amazing Bible Timeline during his lifetime the Goths first invaded Rome, the Transubstantiation mass was practiced, Constantine converted to Christianity, and the council of Nicea was held resulting in the Nicean creed.   You’d hardly expect to find old St. Nicholas in a prison. But St. Nicholas is more than a children’s Christmas legend. Indeed, he was real flesh and blood, a persecuted prisoner for Christ, the bishop of the Mediterranean city of Myra.

    St. Nicholas appears and appeals to God to return them to life and to their families. And so St. Nicholas is the patron and protector of children. In , Nicholas’ bones were stolen from Turkey by some Italian merchant sailors. The bones are now kept in the Church named after him in the Italian port of Bari.   The True History of St. Nicholas Is a Christmas Mystery A fresco of St Nicholas of Myra (circa 12th century) at the Church of Ayios Nikolaos tis Steyis in Cyprus. De Agostini—Getty Images.

      St. Nicholas has been continually venerated as a great saint. In the sixth century, Emperor Justinian I built a church in honor of St. Nicholas at Constantinople, and St. John Chrysostom included his name in the liturgy. In the 10th century, an anonymous Greek author wrote, “The West as well as the East acclaims and glorifies him. The real Nicholas was a man full of generosity and conviction. He was born to wealthy parents who, when they died, left him their fortune. He chose to use his inheritance to help those in need. For example, one of the vignettes in the book is about three sisters who were saved from life on the streets.

Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend by Julie Stiegemeyer is by far the best children’s book on the market concerning the story of Saint Nicholas. The illustrations are beautiful. In the book, Saint Nicholas is referred to as a pastor but he was really a Catholic bishop/5().

Thus I ordered "The Real St. Nicholas" after reading about it on the St. Nichlolas Center website (where there is a huge amount of good and fun info about St.

Nicholas). The book has a range of essays and stories, including the biography of the bishop, different legends from various European cultures and many stories to read aloud to small /5(19).

Just Who Was The Real St. Nicholas. People around the world are celebrating Christmas - and perhaps enjoying a few gifts from Santa Claus.

But. It’s a history I explore in my book, "The True Saint Nicholas." Nicholas was a man of God who worked tirelessly for his flock.

But the most remarkable part of his story comes after his death. The real St. Nicholas lived a long time ago in a place called Asia Minor. It is now the country of Turkey. His family was Greek and his name was Nicholas.

Nicholas’ parents died when he was a teenager. They left him a lot of money which made him a rich young man. Nicholas went to. Here is the story of the historical Saint Nicholas, who was a servant of God.

The Real St. Nicholas One of the things I hate about going shopping during the season of the Christmas rush is the music that is piped in over the mall sound system.

I would happy with traditional renderings of the old carols, but instead, my ears are assaulted with the latest auditory atrocity, celebrating Christmas as a time of consumerism.

This is a great book to teach young children about the real story behind Saint Nicholas. Each year we read this book just before Saint Nicholas day, then celebrate the day (December 6th) by putting the kids' shoes outside their room at night.
