Book of Saints – Bassa, Theogonius, Agapius and Fidelis


BASSA, THEOGONIUS, AGAPIUS and FIDELIS (Saints) Martyrs (August 21) (4th century) Bassa was a devout Christian woman, wife of a Pagan priest, who, with her three sons, suffered death for her Christian Faith at Edessa in Syria, under one of Diocletian’s colleagues, about A.D. 304. She suffered the last of the four, having herself encouraged her children bravely to die for Christ, and been a witness of their triumph.
