(Saint) (November 21) (1st century) The disciple of the Apostles whom Saint Paul greets in writing to the Romans (Romans 16:13). Some identify him with Rufus, the son of Simon the Cyrenian (Matthew 15:21). Others have it that he became Bishop of Thebes, but whether of the Egyptian or of the Grecian city of that name does not appear. There were also other towns of the same name.
