Book of Saints – Martyrs of Palestine – 16 May


(Saints) (May 16) (7th century) Forty-four monks of the monastery of Saint Sabbas massacred by Pagan Arabs during an inroad into Palestine (A.D. 614). Some writers, however, hold that they were among the victims of the Persian invasion during the reign of the Emperor Heraclius. The dates hardly differ.
