Book of Saints – Latinus of Brescia


(Saint) Bishop (March 24) (2nd century) Flavius Latinus, disciple and successor of Saint Viator, third Bishop of Brescia in Lombardy, is believed to have been imprisoned and put to the torture with other Christians, under Domitian; to have escaped with his life, and to have governed the Diocese of Brescia from A.D. 84 to A.D. 115. His relics, discovered in the fifteenth century, under an altar in a chapel, standing in what had been the cemetery traditionally alleged to have been set apart by him for the interment of the bodies of Martyrs, are now fittingly enshrined in the same locality in the church of Saint Afra.
