* Lazare

is a personage of the entourage of Jesus, appearing in the New Testament, and thus became protagonist of Eastern and Western legends of the beginning of the Christian era. It is essentially known by a narrative of the Gospel according to John (chapter 11) according to which Lazarus, who had died for four days and was placed in a sepulcher, would have come out alive from the tomb on the command of Jesus. Legend has it that after the death of Christ, the Jews embarked him in a boat towards Provence in the company of his sisters Martha and Mary of Bethany as well as several other people. These five witnesses of Christ dwelling at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, he left for his part to evangelize Marseilles, of which he became the first bishop and patron.
