Book of Saints – Sabas and Others

Saint Sabas the LectorArticle

(Sabbas) (April 12) (Saints) Martyrs (4th century) Saint Sabas was a Christian soldier in the army of Athanaric, King of the Ostro-Goths, who ruled over the country north of the Danube, now known as Roumania. In a local persecution he boldly confessed Christ before his judges and, after being put to the torture, was cast into a river and left to drown (A.D. 372). He is highly honoured among the Greeks; and with him are commemorated several other brave Christians, victims of the same persecution.
