Book of Saints – Magnus of Anagni


(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (August 19) (3rd century) Several Saints by name Magnus are commemorated on August 19. The Saint Magnus whose relics are at Anagni and who is registered in the Roman Martyrology, was a Bishop of Trani in Sicily. He suffered death under Decius (A.D. 250). The various accounts we have of him and of the others of the same name are confusing and contradictory, owing to the ancient scribes having often failed to distinguish the one from the other.
