During the 4th century, Florian was born in Austria. Under the rule of the emperor Diocletian, Florian was an officer in the Roman army and advanced in the ranks of the army to occupy a position of high authority. Its believed that Florian saved a town from burning by throwing a single bucket of water on the blaze. During those times of anti-Christianity, one of the tasks of the roman army was to search out and persecute those who were Christians and put them to death. Florian did not believe in the persecution of christians and refused to carry out the order to put a grouping of Christians to death
Florian progresses toward the conversion of faith to Christianity and as an act of faith he surrendered himself to the governor of the city of Lorch, Aquilinus. He declared himself to be a certain believer in Christ. Because of his profession, Florain was beaten with stones and set on fire. A large stone was then ties around his neck and he was thrown into the Enns river. At a later time, his body was found and he was given a formal burial. A monastery was built near his tomb during the 1900's and the village of St. Florian came to be. Florian's body was moved to Linz, Austria and then on to Rome.
Florian is known universally as a protector against fire and water due to his commitments, conversions and suffering. It is said that a person was saved from a fire by calling St. Florian's name, and many miracles of healing have been attributed to his intercession.
