Book of Saints – Eutropius, Zosima and Bonosa

Article

EUTROPIUS, ZOSIMA and BONOSA (July 15) (Saints) Martyrs (3rd century) Martyrs at Porto near Rome, probably victims of the persecution under Aurelian (A.D. 273 about), though some antedate them to the time of Septimius Sevcrus (A.D. 193-211). The fifty soldiers commemorated as Martyrs in the Roman Martyrology on July 8 appear to have been converted to the Faith while witnessing the fortitude of Saints Eutropius, Zosima and Bonosa (a brother and his two sisters). For some reason the name of Saint Bonosa has remained the most prominent of the three.
