Book of Saints – Aedesius


AEDESIUS (St.) M. (April 8) (4th cent.) The elder brother of Saint Amphianus and a pupil of Saint Pamphilius of Caesarea. After having in various ways suffered for the Faith, he passed into Egypt, where we read of his venturing to reproach Heraclius, the governor of the province, for the cruelties practised by him against the Christians. He was put to the torture for his boldness and eventually cast into the sea (A.D. 306).
