1st November, St. Doctors Cosmas and Damian.

They were third century Arabian-born twin brothers who embraced Christianity and practised medicine and surgery without a fee.
This led them to being named
anargyroi or 'unmercenaries', attracting many to the Christian faith.
They reputedly cured blindness, fever, paralysis and reportedly expelled a breast serpent.
They were arrested by Lysias, governor of Cilicia (modern day Çukurova, Turkey) during the
Diocletian persecution because of their faith and fame as healers.
Diocletian, who favoured the pantheism of the Olympian gods, issued a series of edicts that condemned the Christians with the goal of eliminating Christianity from the Roman Empire.
