When did St. Christopher live: Third Century

Biography of St. Christopher:
St. Christopher was a martyr in Licia under Decius around 250. He was a giant man who lived in the woods. One day, a child asked him to be carried across a river. Whilst carrying him across the river, the weight of the child seemed to become heavier and heavier,so that he almost couldn't carry him on his shoulder anymore. When they reached the shore, the child revealed itself as Jesus Christ who was carrying the weight of the whole earth. This is why St.Christopher is also patron saint of the travelers. After his baptism, he started preaching in Licia and began his life as a martyr.
