Book of Saints – Felix, Audactus, Januarius, Fortunatus and Septimus


FELIX (AFRICANUS), AUDACTUS (ADAUCTUS), JANUARIUS, FORTUNATUS, and SEPTIMUS (Saints) Martyrs (October 24) (4th century) African Martyrs who suffered under Diocletian, A.D. 303. Every endeavour was used to induce Saint Felix (a Bishop) to deliver up the Sacred Scriptures and other Christian books, the destruction of which was a paramount object with the crafty Emperor, but the Saint remained steadfast to death. Dragged to Rome, he with the others was put no to the sword at Venosa (or perhaps Nola) in the South of Italy.- There is, however, much controversy among the learned as to the names of these Martyrs and the details of their Passion.
