Book of Saints – Donatus and Hilary

Article

DONATUS and HILARY (Saints) Martyrs (August 7) (4th century) Saint Donatus, Bishop of Arezzo in Tuscany, is commemorated liturgically on August 7. He, with Hilary (or Hilarinus), a monk, was put to death for the Faith under Julian the Apostate (A.D. 361). Hilary was scourged to death; Donatus was beheaded. Saint Gregory and others relate the many miracles wrought by these holy men, among which the restoring as before a glass altar-chalice dashed in pieces by the Pagans.
