Book of Saints – Rufus – 27 August

Saint Rufus of CapuaArticle

(Saint) Bishop Martyr (August 27) (1st century) A Bishop of Capua, in the South of Italy, sent thither, it is alleged, by Saint Apollinaris, the disciple of Saint Peter. It is not known in what relation he stood to Saint Priscus, who seems to have been the first Bishop of Capua. Saint Rufus was doubtless a Martyr; but again, the people venerate other local Martyrs bearing the same name of Rufus, and there is much confusion in the traditions regarding them respectively.
