Book of Saints – Felix and Adauctus


FELIX and ADAUCTUS (Saints) Martyrs (August 30) (4th century) Christians who were beheaded in Rome (A.D. 304), in the last great persecution, and who are liturgically commemorated in the Universal Church. Saint Felix was a priest. Saint Adauctus (a Christian of name unknown, so styled because he was unexpectedly added (adauctus) to Saint Felix in the latter’s glorious death struggle in consequence of his calling out that he too was a Christian) is, of course, quite other than the Saint Adaucus (October 4) of Gibbon’s gibe (Decl. and Fall, ch. Xvi.).
