Deacon. Imprisoned for a year for his faith, he was released on condition that he never speak about Christianity where he could be heard by any of the royal court. Benjamin then became a street preacher, proclaiming the word any place he could find people. For his obstinate evangelization during the persecutions of king Varanes, he was arrested, tortured and martyred.
