Book of Saints – Agathius


AGATHIUS (Saint) Martyr (January 18) (Date unknown.) One of a band of thirty-six missionaries, who, in the first or second century, sought to propagate Christianity in Egypt, which country they for that purpose divided into four regions. To Saint Agathius with eight others fell the eastern districts. The conversions they made were numerous and continual. Eventually arrested, they were condemned to death and were burned at the stake as “impious men, disturbers of public order.”
