Roman Catholic Saint. Patron Saint of Scotland. Following his crucifixion at the hands of the Romans, he was buried in St. Patras, Greece, where he remained for 300 years before he was exhumed and taken to Constantinople. The larger part of St. Andrew's remains were stolen from Constantinople in 1210 AD and now reside in this church in Amalfi, southern Italy. In 1879, the Archbishop of Amalfi sent a small piece of St. Andrew's shoulder blade to Scotland and in 1969 Pope Paul VI gave more relics to the country.
