Memorial

Profile

Married to Saint Daria. Zealous and public in his Christianity. Martyred in the persecutions of Numerian and Carinus.

Not surprisingly, many legends developed around a couple of married martyrs, and others were re-written to use them as their lead characters. Modern scholarship has dismissed all these, leaving only two of the thousands of faithful who lost their lives in the early days of the Church.
