For this one you can 'peek'  Grin

“ Christianus mihi nomen est, catholicos vero cognomen” meaning “My name is Christian, my surname is Catholic.”
Now which Saint wrote those words?
If you say Christian Catholic I will accept  Grin

I don't know the answer. Embarrassed Sounds like something a martyr would say in answer to his persecutor's questions though . Am I right?

Is the cincture the rope or cord worn around the waist?  Undecided

You soon will know the answer. Note how Shin put it "I stumbled across the answer" Grin
Think Patricia, Shin found it, then I was sure you too would find it, how come I have that confidence? Why you?
I am enjoying this, a riddle within a riddle  Grin

Interesting this!
 I wonder why I never came across this information before.
It is only now I am reading about a man with wings; a lion with wings;
An ox with wings and last but certainly not least, an eagle with wings!
What do they mean?

Yes, Saint Mathew is the Human/Angel; Mark is depicted as the  Lion ; Luke the Ox and John the Eagle all of them with or without wings.
The choice of the symbol is to be found in the way each Evangelist starts his version of the Bible. Smiley

I think I heard it too, but as Martin said.. I have forgotten.

I suppose guesses might be in order..  Cheesy

Wait.. Maybe I remember.. Hmm..

No.. that quote was similar but.. not the same.. Hmm...

Wait, perhaps.. St. Augustine?
