Book of Saints – Erasmus – 25 November


ERASMUS (Saint) Martyr (November 25), (Date unknown.) A Syrian Christian who suffered for the Faith at Antioch in one of the early persecutions. He may possibly be one and the same with the fourth century Martyr, Erasmus of June 2; but there is not lacking evidence that he was a distinct personage. There can be no doubt that some details in the traditional story of Saint Erasmus (June 2) point to a confusion between him and some other Martyr of the same name.
