Book of Saints – Julian and Eunus


(Saints) Martyrs (February 27) (3rd century) Martyrs at Alexandria in Egypt under Decius (A.D. 250). Julian, too infirm to walk, was carried to the Court of Justice by his two slaves. They were both Christians; but through fear one of them apostatised, while the other, Eunus, bravely shared his master’s lot. They were scourged and then burned to death. Besas, a soldier in guard over them, was condemned and executed merely for having sought to shield them from the insults and outrages of the heathen mob. We have these particulars from Saint Denis of Alexandria, a contemporary and their own Bishop.
