Saint Theodore the Soldier (or "the Recruit," "the Tyro" or Theodore of Amasea) was a soldier and martyr in the early 4th century, enduring the persecutions of the emperors Maximian and Maximus. When it was discovered he was a Christian, a judge sentenced him to starvation. While in prison, the Lord appeared to Theodore and the prison was filled with brightly-shining angels. In terror, the guards took Saint Theodore out and threw him into a large fire. The martyr suffered in the year 306. Like Saint George, Theodore is depicted as battling a dragon, which is symbolic of the saint triumphing over evil and the devil.
His feast is celebrated on February 17, and in the Orthodox Church his miracle of kollyva is commemorated on the first Saturday of Lent.
