Just wondering if Uriah the Hittite is considered a Saint in the Orthodox Church. We don't know much about him from Scripture, but what we do know indicates that he was a devout and righteous man. His integrity and loyalty to God and Israel led him to be murdered. So, it sure seems from the information available that he was a saintly man. Does anybody know?

Thanks.

I tried Google but nothing came up that was related to an Orthodox saint.

Here are the results of a search at Orthodox Wiki:

http://orthodoxwiki.org/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&search=Uriah

Nothing much there, either. Sorry.  Undecided

He was a Hittite mercenary - the Bible speaks of his loyalty to David, not to the God of Israel.

I didn't find if Uriah was a saint, but I did find and interesting blog that shows that 5 Uriahs mentioned in the OT are in some shape or form connected to an OT saint.
