Book of Saints – Florentinus and Hilary


(Saints) Martyrs (September 27) (Date uncertain.) The learned are not agreed as to who these Saints were. Semont, near Autun in France, seems the more likely conjecture as to their place of martyrdom, rather than Sion in the Valais. Some date it A.D. 406, at the time of the Vandal invasion of Gaul; others A.D. 265 in the raid of the Alamanni under Chrocus. There is a consent that their tongues were torn out previous to their being beheaded.
