Saint Paul of Egypt

Memorial

Profile

Leader of a group of 37 Christian Egyptian noblemen who created and worked in an organization to spread the faith through Egypt. Though there were many converts, the men were attacked, beaten, arrested and abused in various places around the country. The governor of the region had them all arrested, brought to him, and ordered them to make public sacrifices to show they were good citizens. Paul, as their leader, explained that death was better than denial of their faith. Martyr.
