Book of Saints – Potitus

Saint PotitusArticle

(Saint) Martyr (January 13) (2nd century) A native of the island of Sardinia who, when a boy, was converted to Christianity, and later, in his turn, succeeded in converting his own father. It is alleged that the Emperor Marcus Aurelius in person conducted the trial of Saint Potitus, accused of the crime of professing the Christian religion, or rather, of that of rejecting the gods of Rome. It seems certain that he was put to the torture in Rome itself, but his execution appears to have taken place in some city of Southern Italy (A.D. 166).
