Book of Saints – Andrew and Others


ANDREW and OTHERS (Saints) Martyrs (August 19) (4th century) A tribune in the Greek army, who, with many of his comrades, was converted to the true Faith, owing to a miracle which took place in connection with a victory over the Persians. Accused of being Christians, they were massacred by the soldiers of the President Seleucus, in the defiles of Mount Taurus in Cilicia (A.D. 300). In the Church of Saint Vincent at Brioude (France) some of the relics of these martyrs were venerated and became the object of an annual pilgrimage.
