Book of Saints – Donatus and Hilary


DONATUS and HILARY (Saints) Martyrs (August 7) (4th century) Saint Donatus, Bishop of Arezzo in Tuscany, is commemorated liturgically on August 7. He, with Hilary (or Hilarinus), a monk, was put to death for the Faith under Julian the Apostate (A.D. 361). Hilary was scourged to death; Donatus was beheaded. Saint Gregory and others relate the many miracles wrought by these holy men, among which the restoring as before a glass altar-chalice dashed in pieces by the Pagans.
