Book of Saints – Leo


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (March 14) (4th or 5th century) A Bishop of whom nothing is now known save that the old official Registers in Rome record his name and qualify him as a Bishop and Martyr. He appears to have suffered during the troubles with the Arians. His tomb was discovered outside the walls of Rome in 1857, and verses cut in the stone tell us that he had married while still a heathen, and that he lived to the age of eighty. His body, however, had been removed and enshrined in one of the churches of Rome as early as the ninth century.
