Book of Saints – Numidicus and Others

main article for Saint Numidicus of CarthageArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (August 9) (3rd century) The number of Martyrs included by the Roman Martyrology as fellow-sufferers with Saint Numidicus is unknown. They were Africans, and perished at the stake, probably A.D. 252, as victims of the Decian persecution, though the Roman Martyrology attributes their Passion to the edicts of Valerian. Numidicus, it is stated, was dragged still breathing out of the ashes of the funeral pyre, and lived for some years afterwards as one of the clergy of the Church of Carthage.
