Book of Saints – Castor and Stephen


CASTOR and STEPHEN (Saints) Martyrs (April 27) (Date unknown) Two Christians registered in the Martyrologies as having suffered martyrdom at Tarsus in Cilicia. Dates and particulars are lost. But it does not appear that there are any substantial grounds for the identification of these Saints with the Saints Castor and Dorotheus of March 28, as is suggested by some modern authorities. At Tarsus there were many Martyrs, and Castor is quite a common name among Asiatic Greeks.
