And we meet a few other characters named Lucas, such as the baroque painters Lucas Jordán or Lucas Valdés. By way of curiosity, LUCA is the acronym in English that refers to the last universal common ancestor.
But perhaps the most recognized of all is that Luke was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus, disciple of Pablo Tarso and one of the four evangelists, hence it is a name with great biblical and religious tradition.
From the first moment, Lucas, a doctor born in Turkish lands, was one of the followers of Jesus and many consider that his New Testament texts are the best written, refined and documented. Educated in the Greek tradition, it took time to become a Christian. The story goes that he became after meeting Mary, the mother of Jesus, on a journey he made with Paul.
Even today everything that surrounds the death of this saint is unknown. The only thing that has been established is that it occurred after that of Pablo and Pedro and that he was martyred and that he asked to be buried with the picture of the carved image of 'Our Lady', which he himself would do years ago.
