Book of Saints – Cassian – 13 August – bishop


CASSIAN (Saint) Bishop, Martyr (August 13) (4th century) A Bishop of Todi in Central Italy, successor in that See of Saint Pontianus who had converted him to Christianity. He won the crown of martyrdom under Maximian Herculeus at the beginning of the fourth century; but the traditions concerning him have been confused with those relating to the more famous Saint Cassian of Imola, so that particulars cannot be now given with any confidence. He is still in great veneration at Todi, where his relics are enshrined with those of other local Martyrs.
