Book of Saints – Fructuosus, Augurius and Eulogius


(Saints) Martyrs (January 21) (3rd century) Saint Fructuosus, Bishop of Tarragona, then the capital of Spain, was, during the persecution of Valerian and Gallienus, called upon to worship the gods. He replied that he worshipped none save the One True God, which same profession of Faith was made by his deacons, Augurius and Eulogius. The Martyrs were then fastened to wooden stakes and burned alive. When the fire had burned through their bonds they extended their arms in the form of a cross and thus expired (A.D. 259). Saint Augustine has left us a Panegyric on Saint Fructuosus.
