Book of Saints – Mitrius

main article for Saint MitriusArticle

(Saint) Martyr (November 13) (4th century) A Greek by birth, slave of a hard master in the South of Gaul. The latter, a Pagan and a hater of Christianity, ill-used Mitrius savagely on account of his religion. The cruelty was lifelong for both, since Mitrius quickly followed his persecutor to the tomb (A.D. 314). Saint Mitrius is in especial honour at Aix in Provence. The French call him Saint Mitre, also Merre or Metre.
