He lived in the III century during the reign of Diocletian. He was in his army, performing a role which allowed him to support the imprisoned Christians, to provide to the burial of the martyrs and to spread the Christianity.
It is narrated that, when he went to the prisons, he knew two young brothers, who were condamned because they were christians. When they were at the point of death Sebastian convinced them to die heroically.
While he was talking, suddenly his face was irradiated from a miraculous light, which left the people astonished. Also Zoe, who was dumb from 6 years.
She asked him the grace. He put his fingers on her mouth, making the sign of the cross. He began to speak.
This event contributed to spread the christian faith between the common people and also in the aristocracy.

He was stripped and tied to a tree, his body was used as a target for the archers, finally he was killed.
In 367 Pope Damasus ordered to build a Basilica in the Via Appia: now a days it is one of the 7 main churches in Rome.
