Book of Saints – Lucy and Twenty Others


(Luceias) (Saints) Martyrs (June 25) (3rd century) They are said to have been prisoners taken in war and sent to Rome by the Emperor Probus (A.D. 260). In Rome they were put to death as Christians. The Acts of Saint Lucy (which the Bollandists deem not untrustworthy) have it that, though a virgin consecrated to God, a captive chief, by name Aucejas, sought her in marriage, and that in the end she was martyred. There is, however, much difficulty in identifying the Saints and in reconciling dates in their legends. See Saints Lucilla, etc. (July 29); also Saints Faustus, etc. (June 24), and Saint Lucy (July 6).
