Book of Saints – Armogaste, Masculas, Archiminus and Saturus


ARMOGASTES, MASCULAS, ARCHIMINUS and SATURUS (Saints) Martyrs (March 29) (5th century) African victims of the Arian persecution under Genseric, King of the Vandals. We have particulars concerning them from the pen of Victor Vitensis, a trustworthy writer of the following century. They were high-born nobles at the Royal Court. Armogastes was put to the torture, but afterwards made to languish to death in slavery “lest the Romans should venerate him as a Martyr.” The other two were beheaded about A.D. 464.
