Book of Saints – Lucian, Maximian and Julian


(January 8) (Saints) Martyrs (Date uncertain) Saints stated to have been companions of Saint Denis of Paris, and consequently as to whose date there is much dispute, whether of the Apostolic Age or of two centuries later. They were the Apostles of the country round Beauvais, of which city some say that Saint Lucian was the first Bishop. It is agreed that in the end they were put to death as Christians. A modern view holds that there were two Saints, by name Lucian, at Beauvais, and places the second of them as late as the time of Julian the Apostate, in the latter half of the fourth century.
