Book of Saints – Felix of Spoleto


FELIX of SPOLETO (Saint) Bishop, Martyr (May 18) (4th century) There is a dispute as to whether this Saint was Bishop of Spoleto or of the neighbouring city of Spello (Hispellum); but all agree that he was one of the victims of the great persecution (A.D. 304 about) under Diocletian and Maximian Herculeus, by whose orders he was beheaded as a Christian teacher. At Spoleto he is still in great veneration. Baring Gould with others contend that he was Bishop not of Spoleto in Umbria, but of Spalato in Dalmatia.
