Memorial

Profile

Imperial Roman centurian, possibly in the Theban Legion. Martyred both for his faith, and probably for refusing to martyr other Christians. Legend says that he fled his legion, had a series of captures and narrow escapes, preaching on the run and converting many before finally being caught and beheaded, but those documents are likely pious fiction.
