Book of Saints – Mark, Marcian and Others


(October 4) (Saints) Martyrs (4th century) Victims of the great persecution in Egypt about A.D. 304, when its horrors were extended to the Christian laity under the Caesar Maximin Daza. The Registers contain special mention of the two brothers, Mark and Martian; but make no attempt to catalogue the other victims, whom they describe as innumerable and as comprising victims of all ages and of both sexes. Hideous tortures appear to have preceded the execution of very many of these Christians.
