Saint Alexander of Bergamo (died c. 303) was an early Christian martyr who lived during the 3rd century. He is believed to have been a Roman soldier from the city of Bergamo, Italy, and was known for his strong commitment to the Christian faith. During the Diocletian persecution, Alexander refused to renounce his faith and worship pagan gods, leading to his arrest and torture. Despite the intense suffering, he remained steadfast in his beliefs and refused to deny Christ. Saint Alexander was eventually beheaded for his refusal to recant his faith, on the spot now occupied by the church of San Alessandro in Colonna. He is venerated as a martyr for his courageous witness to Christ. He is remembered as a model of Christian fidelity and bravery in the face of persecution.
