Book of Saints – Montanus

main article for Saint Montanus of GaetaArticle

(Saint) Martyr (June 17) (4th century) Some have thought that this Martyr, a Christian soldier, suffered under Hadrian in the second century, but the opinion now prevails that he was one of the victims of the fury of Diocletian. He was, after a period of imprisonment, taken over to the Island of Ponza, and there thrown into the sea, with a heavy stone tied round his neck. The Christians recovered his body and enshrined it at Gaeta.
