Book of Saints – Leovigild and Christopher


(Saints) (August 20) Martyrs (9th century) Two Spanish monks, disciples of Saint Eulogius the Martyr, who were put to the torture at Cordova, and in the end beheaded (A.D. 852), during the persecution of the Christians by the Arabs, then masters of Spain. Their bodies were cast into the flames; but some relics were recovered by their fellow Christians, and are yet venerated at Cordova.
