Book of Saints – Maximilian – 29 October


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (October 29) (Date unknown) This Saint is registered in the Roman Martyrology together with a Saint Valentine, described as a Confessor, and without further comment. By many this Saint Maximilian is now considered to be identical with Saint Maximilian, Bishop of Lorsch (October 12). Certain old documents add the word “Patavii” as the place with which Saint Maximilian was connected. By this may very well be meant “Passau,” where is now the shrine of the Saint Maximilian of October 12. Of the Saint Valentine, coupled with Saint Maximilian on October 29, nothing whatever is known.
