Butler’s Lives of the Saints – Saunt Mitrius, Martyr


This ancient martyr suffered under Dioclesian, at Aix in Provence, and is honoured as principal patron of that city. Saint Gregory of Tours makes honourable mention of him. His torments were various and dreadful; but a miraculous constancy enabled him to bear them with joy. No authentic acts of his triumph have reached our times.
