Book of Saints – Lucius and Others


(Saints) Martyrs (February ll) (4th century) Catholic Christians of Adrianople, persecuted by the Arians, and eventually through their machinations put to death. Their leader, Saint Lucius, Bishop of Adrianople, is well known on account of his zeal at the Council of Sardica (A.D. 343) and elsewhere in defence of Orthodoxy. Pope Julius did all that could be done to protect him, and gained the consent of the Arian Emperor Constantius to his return to Adrianople. The date of the martyrdom of these holy men is disputed. It may with all probability be assigned to A.D. 348.
