Book of Saints – Julian of Caesarea


(Saint) Martyr (February 17) (4th century) A Christian of Cappadocia who (as Eusebius relates) was present at Caesarea in Palestine at the martyrdom of Saint Pamphilus and his fellow-sufferers. Remarking that the holy men were only eleven in number, lacking one to make up a company equal to that of the Apostles, Saint Julian offered himself to the executioners to fill up the number. The judges intervened, and on Julian persisting that he was one in Faith and Hope with the eleven, condemned him to be roasted to death at a slow fire. He expired, thanking God for the grace bestowed upon him (A.D. 308).
