      St. Polycarp
      Polycarp was martyred at 86 years of age in 155. He was a disciple of St. John the Evangelist and bishop of the See of Smyrna. His letter to the Philippians witnesses to various New Testament writings. The Martyrdom of Polycarp records his being burned at the stake. He was one of the first martyrs to receive universal veneration.
