Book of Saints – Domitius and Others

Article

DOMITIUS (DOMETIUS) and OTHERS (August 7) (Saints) Martyrs (4th century) The entry in the Roman Martyrology is “At Nisibis in Mesopotamia Saint Domitius, a Persian monk who with two of his disciples was stoned to death under Julian the Apostate.” But modern criticism has great difficulty in accepting this Saint Domitius or Dometius as other than the Martyr of the same name commemorated on July 5. Julian the Apostate was never at Nisibi. On the other hand, it is fairly clear that this Saint Domitius the Hermit is not the Phrygian soldier-saint venerated on March 23.
