Book of Saints – Rufinus and Others


(Saints) Martyrs (October 11) (4th century) There is great difficulty in disentangling this Saint with his fellow-sufferers from others of the same name, and especially from Saint Rufinus of Assisi (July 30). The Saint Rufinus of October 11 appears to have been a Bishop of the Diocese in Italy known as “Dei Marsi,” and to have suffered at Rieti, under an Emperor, Maximin or Maximian; but, whether under Maximin I (A.D. 235, about) or under the more notorious Maximian Herculeus, the colleague of Diocletian (at the close of the third century or beginning of the fourth), is uncertain.
