Book of Saints – Rufus and Carpophorus

Saint Rufus of CapuaArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (August 27) (3rd century) Martyrs at Capua, under Diocletian (A.D. 295). This Saint Rufus was only a deacon, and is clearly a distinct personage from the ancient Bishop Saint Rufus, of Apostolic times, though some of the particulars alleged of the one evidently belong to the life of the other.
