Book of Saints – Magnus, Castus and Maximus


(September 4) (Saints) Martyrs (Date unknown) No mention is made in the Roman Martyrology of the place or date of the martyrdom of Saint Magnus and his two companions. However, the Bollandists are reasonably of opinion that they were of the number of seventeen Martyrs put to death at Ancyra in Galatia, and that their names were accidentally separated from those of Saints Rufinus, Sylvanus and Vitalicus in the transcription of the Martyrologies. Both entries occur on the same day.
