Book of Saints – Felix of Thynissa


FELIX of THYNISSA (Saint) Martyr (November 6) (Date uncertain) An African Christian, who in one of the early persecutions, having faithfully confessed Christ before the Roman Judge and having been sentenced to be beheaded, was on the following morning found dead in his prison, as was related by Saint Augustine in a sermon to his people of Hippona. The Thynissa where Saint Felix suffered is an old town near Hippona (Bona), not Tunis, as some have thought.
