(Mathias) [1st Century], APOSTLE, was chosen by lot by the Eleven to take the place of Judas among the 12 Apostles, so that the number of Apostles would correspond to the number of the tribes of Israel. He is usually depicted as an old man holding a halberd, the instrument of his martyrdom. His feast is May 14.
