Saint Andrew (Greek: á¼ˆÎ½Î´Ï�ÎÎ±Ï‚, Andreas; early 1st centuryâ€”mid to late 1st century AD), called in the Orthodox tradition PrÅ�toklÄ“tos, or the First-called, is a Christian Apostle and the brother of Saint Peter. The name "Andrew" (Greek: manly, brave, from á¼€Î½Î´Ï�ÎµÎ¯Î±, Andreia, "manhood, valour"), like other Greek names, appears to have been common among the Jews from the 3rd or 2nd century BC. No Hebrew or Aramaic name is recorded for him. He is considered the founder and first bishop of the Church of Byzantium and is consequently the patron saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
