Born in Narbo, (now Narbonne), Sébastien is a citizen of Milan, Italy. A professional soldier, he enjoyed the affection of emperors Diocletian and Maximian Hercules, who named him centurion. During the persecution of Diocletian, however, he was executed on the orders of the sovereigns for supporting his co-religionists in their faith and performed several miracles. He was tied to a pole and pierced with arrows.
