Book of Saints – Hyacinth of Caesarea


(Saint) Martyr (July 3) (2nd century) A Chamberlain of the Emperor Trajan at Caesarea in Cappadocia. Accused of being a Christian, he was cruelly scourged and thrown into prison where, being given no food, but such meat as was consecrated to idols, he lingered many days and ultimately died of hunger early in the second century.
