Book of Saints – Cyriacus


CYRIACUS (QUIRIACUS) (Saint) Bishop, Martyr (May 4) (4th century) Most probably a Bishop of Ancona (Italy) who, while making his pilgrimage to the Holy Land, perished in the persecution of Julian the Apostate (A.D. 362). But many assert that he was a Bishop of Jerusalem, put to death under Hadrian (A.D. 117-138). In reality nothing certain is now known about him. His relics are venerated at Ancona.
