Book of Saints – Autonomus


AUTONOMUS (Saint) Bishop, Martyr (September 12) (4th century) Alleged by the Greeks to have been an Italian Bishop, who, to escape the fury of the persecution under Diocletian, fled into Bithynia in Asia Minor, where he made many converts to Christianity and afterwards suffered death for the Faith. This must have been about A.D. 300. The Life of Saint Autonomus we possess was not written till the sixth century.
