Book of Saints – Martyrs of Bulgaria


BULGARIA (MARTYRS OF) (July 23) (9th century) During the war between the Greek Emperor Nicephorus and the Bulgars, not as yet Christians, many Catholics, besides those slain in battle, were put to death on account of their Faith. There is much uncertainty as to how this came about, but they have always been reckoned as Martyrs.
