(Saint) Martyr (August 2) (3rd century) This steadfast Christian, an African, did all in his power to escape arrest under the persecuting edicts of his time. He wandered from place to place; but nevertheless, was at last denounced and brought to trial. He bore himself bravely in the torture chamber, and was afterwards burned to death. His martyrdom cannot be dated later than the reign of Decius (A.D. 250).
