Book of Saints – Faith


FAITH (Saint) Virgin Martyr (October 6) (4th century) Born at Agen in the South of France and arrested in the same city by the notorious Prefect Dacian under the Emperor Maximian Herculeus. She was burned to death A.D. 303. A number of bystanders (chief among whom was the Martyr Saint Caprasius) inspired by her example, bravely declared themselves to be also Christians, and were on that account beheaded. The relics of Saint Faith were enshrined at the Abbey of Conque, but a portion of her ashes were taken to Glastonbury. Hence probably her place in the Sarum Calendar and the Dedication to her of certain English churches.
