Book of Saints – Martyrs in Africa – 11 February


AFRICA (MARTYRS IN). (February 11) (4th century) Martyrs known as the “Guardians of the Holy Scriptures.” They elected rather to die than to deliver up the Sacred Books to be burned as ordered in the great persecution under Diocletian. Those commemorated on February 11 suffered in the Province of Numidia (A.D.303). Saint Augustine makes special mention of them.
