St. Francis

St. Francis is fifth on the list.St Francis may seem an odd choice for my collection but I felt his stance on life merited him a spot. (It also helps I just finished a book about him and am three-fourths the way through another.) St Francis came from a wealthy family but forsook his wealth after a failed career as a knight and an active young life. He and then a few friends wrote a rule and got approval from the pope. His rule requires that a member gives up all possessions. So Francis may not have been a recognized apologetic but I think through his actions he defends the true faith.
