Book of Saints – Anastasius and Others – 11 May


ANASTASIUS and OTHERS (Saints) Martyrs (May 11) (3rd century) A tribune in the army of the Emperor Decius, whose duty it became to carry out the sentences pronounced on the Christians on account of their religion. Moved by the courage under torture of Saint Venantius, Saint Anastasius was converted to Christianity, and together with his wife, children and some members of his household, was instructed and baptised by Saint Porphyrius. Shortly after the death of the latter, Anastasius and his family were arrested and beheaded (A.D. 251). Their relics are in the church of Saint Venantius at Camerino (Central Italy).
