Book of Saints – Firmus of Tagaste


(Saint) Bishop (July 31) (Date uncertain) Of him Saint Augustine writes that he was Firm by name but Firmer yet by Faith. Put to the torture (probably in the third century) he endured the most frightful agonies of pain rather than betray the hiding-place of a fellow Christian. Baronius in the sixteenth century inserted his name in the Roman Martyrology.
