(Saints) Martyrs (March 7) (3rd century) African Martyrs under the Emperor Septimius Severus (A.D. 203). Their deeply interesting Acts, universally regarded as authentic, have been many times published, and fully detail their sufferings. Perpetua and Felicitas were married women of good family; Revocatus and the others were slaves. They were all thrown to the wild beasts in the Amphitheatre at Carthage at the public games celebrated in honour of the Emperor’s birthday.
