Book of Saints – Amaranthus


AMARANTHUS (Saint) M. (November 7) (3rd century) Said to have suffered martyrdom at Vieux, near Albi, in the south of France in the third century. Little or nothing is known about him, save what we can glean from Saint Gregory of Tours, who says that he had read the account of his martyrdom. He appears, however, to have been widely venerated in ancient times. Saint Eugene of Carthage, banished from Africa, came to die at the tomb of Saint Amaranthus. The relics of both Saints are enshrined in the Cathedral of Albi.
