Book of Saints – Hemeterius and Celidoinius


(Saints) (March 3) Martyrs (Date uncertain) Two famous Spanish Martyrs, believed to have been soldiers in the Roman Imperial army. They were put to the torture and beheaded as Christians at Calahorra in Old Castile, but in which persecution is unknown. Prudentius wrote a Hymn in their honour, in which he deplores the destruction by the Pagans of the Acts of their Martyrdom. Saint Gregory of Tours has preserved for us the few particulars we have.
