Book of Saints – Lucillian, Claudius, Hypatius, Paul and Dionysius


(Saints) Martyrs (June 3) (3rd century) Martyrs in the ninth persecution, that of Aurelian (A.D. 273). Saint Lucillian, an old man, was put to the torture; and then, with the four boys, Claudius, Hypatius, Paul and Dionysius, tied to the stake to be burned; but rain having extinguished the fire lighted round them, Lucillian was crucified and the others beheaded. They suffered at Constantinople; but probably came from Nicomedia, where Lucillian before his conversion had been a pagan priest.
