Book of Saints – Brictius


BRICTIUS (Saint) Bishop (July 9) (4th century) Bishop of Martola near Spoleto in Umbria (Central Italy). During the persecution under Diocletian he was imprisoned for preaching Christianity, but miraculously escaped and zealously persevered in his ministry, passing to his reward after the Peace of the Church under Constantine (A.D. 312). It must, however, be confessed that the traditional details given concerning him are of very uncertain authenticity.
