Book of Saints – Alexander and Antonina


ALEXANDER and ANTONINA (Saints) Martyrs (May 3) (4th century) Saint Alexander, a Christian soldier, during the persecution under Diocletian and his colleagues, succeeded in rescuing a Christian maiden, Saint Antonina, from a house of ill-fame, to which, as was not unusual in pagan times, she had been condemned. They were both arrested and, after preliminary torture, burned to death at Constantinople (A.D. 313), Maximin Daza then reigning in the East.
