| St.Andrei (St.Andrew) is the one who “owns herds, cows and beasts”, ”the one who defends you from wild creatures”.
Legend: St. Andrew is celebrated on the 30th of November. This day has a special meaning for Romanian people. He is the one who baptized the first Christians in our country, that’s why he is considered to be the Romanians’ spiritual patron.
Defended by the wolves
In Romania, St. Andrew’s name is automatically linked to that of the wolves. Some researchers believe that the wolf was one of the symbols of the sanctuaries from Dacia. Strictly referring to the link between Andrew and these wolves, forgotten legends say that these animals helped the Dacian civilization when the castle from Sarmisegetuza was destroyed and that the spirit of the White Wolf, leader of the wolves, lurked near Andrew till the reached the cave which offered him protection.
