According to legend, Vitus was the son of a pagan, but was converted to Christianity by his tutor St. Modestus, and his nurse St. Crescentia. Although he drove out a demon from Emperor Diocletian's son, his faith caused him to be imprisoned, tortured, and martyred. His saint day is celebrated by a dance around a statue of him, know as St. Vitus' Dance, (which was often confused with chorea) believed to give a year's worth of good health.
