Saint Anthony of Padua (Portuguese: Santo António de Pádua), born Fernando Martins de Bulhões (15 August 1195 – 13 June 1231) also known as Saint Anthony of Lisbon (Portuguese: Santo António de Lisboa) was a Portuguese Catholic priest and friar of the Franciscan Order.

He was born and raised by a wealthy family in Lisbon, Portugal, and died in Padua, Italy. Noted by his contemporaries for his powerful preaching, expert knowledge of scripture, and undying love and devotion to the poor and the sick, he was one of the most quickly canonized saints in church history.

He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946. He is also the patron saint of lost things.
