Book of Saints – Anastasius – 9 January


ANASTASIUS (Saint) Martyr (January 9) (4th century) A companion in martyrdom of Saint Julian of Antioch, and said to have been previously by him miraculously raised from the dead. An old English Martyrology narrates the legend as follows: “This Julian awoke from death a heathen, who was afterwards baptised. This man told such a mournful tale about the way to Hell as never came to man before nor after since.” The year 311 under Maximin Daza is given as a probable date of the martyrdom of Saint Anastasius.
