St. Stephen, (died 36 ce, Jerusalem; feast day December 26), Christian deacon in Jerusalem and the first Christian martyr, whose apology before the Sanhedrin (Acts of the Apostles 7) points to a distinct strand of belief in early Christianity. His defense of his faith before the rabbinic court enraged his Jewish audience, and he was taken out. " In his witty and illuminating introduction, which takes up the first third of the book, Robertson Davies invites us to join him in a "Feast of Stephen." Davies' selection of fifteen pieces from Leacock's less familiar works presents the humorist as a true, broad, and sympathetic interpreter of Canadian life, as a man who may have lacked self.

On the night following, Stephen appeared and said to him: Weep not. I prayed God to hide our bodies.
