Book of Saints – Martin of Vienne


(Saint) Bishop (July 1) (2nd century) According to tradition, the third Bishop of Vienne in Gaul. He is alleged to have been sent as a missionary into Gaul by Pope Saint Alexander (A.D. 121-132). Some writers say that this Martial was an eye-witness of the Crucifixion of Our Lord, and that he was a disciple of the Apostles. The former statement is not probable, but there may be some ground for the latter assertion.
