Though Persia/Iran had never been a Christian country, Christianity and specifically the Catholic Church had enough of an impact on Persia and Persians to produce a considerable number of saints of this origin, at various times in the Church's history– some of them travelling far afield from their native country, such as Saint Ivo of Huntingdonshire who got his fame as a hermit in England.
