(Saints) Martyrs (September 26) (4th century) Cyprian, from leading a life of sin and making his livelihood as a necromancer and astrologer, was converted to Christianity by the virgin Saint Justina, whom he had thought to lead astray. In the persecution under Diocletian they were both arrested and taken to the Imperial residence at Nicomedia (Asia Minor) and there condemned and beheaded on account of their religion (A.D. 300 about). Their relics are now enshrined in Rome in the Baptistery of the Church of Saint John Lateran.
