Book of Saints – Agoardus, Aglibertus and Others

Article

AGOARDUS, AGLIBERTUS and OTHERS (Saints) Martyrs (June 24) (3rd century) A group of Martyrs described as having been so numerous as to defy counting. They appear to have been massacred in a popular outbreak against the Christians, at Creteil, near Paris. The tradition is that Saints Agoardus and Aglibert, their leaders, had come from the Rhine country, and that Saints Ewaldus, Altinus and Savinian had converted them to Christianity. The details concerning these Martyrs, now available, are very untrustworthy; and the dates given still more so. But A.D. 273 seems likely as the year of their triumph.
