Book of Saints – Tyrannio, Silvanus, Peleus, Nilus and Zenobius

main article for Article

(Saints) Martyrs (February 20) (4th century) These are the most prominent among a multitude of Christians, men, women and children, done to death on account of their religion at Tyre in Phoenicia in the first years of the fourth century. The four first named were Bishops, and Zenobius was a priest. Of the others, the Martyrology quaintly says that God alone knows how many there were in all. Fierce tortures and strange forms of torture, horribly varied, carried them off. Praying for their murderers, they fell asleep in Christ.
