Long Description:
ENG: Jude was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He is generally identified with Thaddeus, and is also variously called Jude of James, Jude Thaddaeus, Judas Thaddaeus or Lebbaeus. He is sometimes identified with Jude, "brother of Jesus", but is clearly distinguished from Judas Iscariot, another disciple, the betrayer of Jesus.

In traditional views has in hand a club or hatchet (halberd). Also, he is placed in the hands of the head plate with the image of Christ, which according to legend, brought by the king of Edessa.

CZ: Svatý Juda Tadeáš byl jedním ze dvanácti apoštolu Ježíše Krista. Zprávy, které o nem máme, nejsou pocetné, s výjimkou listu, který je mu pripisován, a který je soucástí novozákonního kánonu. Nekdy bývá považován za bratra Ježíše Krista.

V tradicních zobrazeních má v ruce kyj nebo sekeru (halapartnu). Také je mu kladena do rukou deska s obrazem hlavy Krista, kterou podle legendy prinesl králi z Edessy. Nekdy je v dlouhém rouchu a drží knihu nebo svitek. Na znázorneních se všemi apoštoly zaujímá Juda Tadeáš témer ve všech prípadech skromné místo.
