Book of Saints – Carpophorus and Abundantius


CARPOPHORUS and ABUNDANTIUS (December 10) (Saints) Martyrs (3rd century) A priest and his deacon, two among the many thousands who suffered death as Christians in the persecution organised by the Emperor Diocletian. The date of their martyrdom is placed by modern authorities at some year between A.D. 290 and A.D. 300. The place, whether in Rome itself, or at Spoleto, or even in Spain, is much disputed.
