Pope Saint EutychianAlso known as

  • Eutychianus



He was the 27th pope, but very little is known about him. Legend says he buried 324 martyrs with his own hands, but he reigned in a quiet period of no state persecution, so this is questionable. Another legend credits him with developing the blessings of fields and crops, but this came later. Some documents call him a martyr, but there are no contemporary records to back it up.


  • Etruria or Tuscany (both in modern Italy)
