Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saint Zoticus, Bishop of Comana in Cappadocia, Martyr


He first detected, zealously confuted, and condemned the errors and impostures of the Cataphryges or Montanists with their false prophecies, as Eusebius mentions. To this triumph over heresy and imposture he added the crown of martyrdom, which he received in the persecution of Severus, about the year 204.
