Book of Saints – Maurus and Others


(Saints) Martyrs (August 22) (3rd century) Saint Maurus was a Christian who made many converts among the Pagans in the neighbourhood. He with forty-nine companions suffered death on account of their religion, most probably under Valerian, towards A.D. 260; though some modern investigators insist on dating their martyrdom in the time of Diocletian, thirty or forty years later. It is agreed that Reims in France was the scene of their martyrdom.
