CALOCERUS (Saint) Martyr (April 18) (2nd century) An official under the Emperor Hadrian at Brescia in Lombardy, who, having witnessed the courage with which Saints Faustinus and Jovita went to their death for Christ, and the miracles which ensued, was converted to Christianity and baptised, together with a great number of other Pagans. Arrested at Brescia in his turn as a Christian, he was there put to the torture, but was afterwards taken to Albenga in Liguria, and beheaded near that town.
