(Saints) Martyrs (August 12) (4th century) Twenty-nine Christians of Augsburg who suffered for their religion in the last great persecution under Diocletian and Maximian, at the beginning of the fourth century. Saint Hilaria was the mother of the famous Saint Affra, and was discovered by the Pagans praying in a little building erected over her daughter’s grave. They forthwith heaped brushwood around it, and the flames consumed Hilaria with her maid servants. The other Martyrs named above suffered in riots, to which the mob at the time was incited by the powerful Pagan influences still almost everywhere dominant in the West. The discovery of the relics of these Martyrs or of some among them led to the annual celebration of a festival in their honour at Augsburg on August 12.
