Tribune in the imperial Roman army, stationed at Vienne, Gaul (modern France). During the persecutions of Diocletian, he hid Saint Julian of Brioude from the anti-Christian authorities; Ferreolus may have been Julian’s superior officer. For this, and for his faith, he was arrested by Crispin, the local governor. He was scourged and imprisoned, miraculously escaped, but was recaptured. Martyr.
