The Bishop Blaize

NAME BISHOP BLAIZE
ADDRESS GOSFORD STREET
Saint Blaise, otherwise Bishop Blaize, was a physician and Bishop of Sebastea in historical Armenia (today Sivas in Turkey). He was martyred by being beaten, attacked with iron carding combs and beheaded. He became one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages and because he was martyred with steel combs he became the patron saint of wool combers in particular and the wool trade in general
