Book of Saints – Baudelius


BAUDELIUS (Saint) Martyr (May 20) (2nd or 3rd century) A married layman, born at Orleans, who laboured in the propagation of Christianity in Gaul and in the end was put to death on that account by the persecuting Roman authorities at Nimes in the south of France. As in many similar cases of Saints engaged in the conversion of France, there is no agreement among the learned as to the date of his Apostolate. Some hold that he was beheaded in the year 187; others place him more than a century later, and date his martyrdom in 295. He has always been in great popular veneration. Some four hundred churches in France and Spain have been dedicated in his honour.
