Book of Saints – Andronicus, Tarachus and Probus


ANDRONICUS, TARACHUS and PROBUS (Saints) Martyrs (October 11) (4th century) The triumph of these Martyrs has a prominent place in the Greek and Roman Martyrologies. Their Acts are universally accepted as genuine and contain the particulars of the triple examination which they underwent in the towns of Tarsus, Mopsuestia and Anazarbus in Cilicia, together with an authentic report of their passion written down by Christian eyewitnesses. The latter recovered their bodies and buried them. They were beheaded after unflinchingly undergoing excruciating tortures (A.D. 304), under Galerius, the colleague of the Emperor Diocletian.
