Book of Saints – Gunifort


(Saint) Martyr (August 22) (Date unknown) A native of Scotland or Ireland who left his country in company with his brother Saint Gunibald, and of his two sisters. The two latter suffered martyrdom in Germany; and his brother at Como on the confines of Italy. Saint Gunifort, hit by arrows, succeeded in escaping the same fate, and in reaching Pavia, where he however died of the wounds received. His relics are still venerated at Pavia. It is conjectured that these martyrdoms took place under Maximian Herculeus, the ferocious colleague of the persecuting Emperor Diocletian, that is, about A.D. 300.
