Book of Saints – Alphaeus and Zacchaeus


ALPHAEUS and ZACCHAEUS (Saints) Martyrs (November 17) (4th century) Martyrs in Palestine during the persecution under Diocletian (about A.D. 302). They were prominent among the multitude of Christians in the Holy Land, who with Saint Procopius laid down their lives for Christ. In the accounts we have of them, stress is particularly put upon their heroic endurance of the most appalling tortures, previous to their execution.
