Book of Saints – Sabinianus and Potentianus

main article for Saint Potentian of SensArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (December 31) (1st century) Martyrs at Sens (France), of which city they are regarded as Patron Saints, and Sabinianus as first Bishop. They are said to have been of the seventy-two disciples sent out to preach by Christ himself, and to have been directed to Gaul by Saint Peter. They appear to have laboured in several districts in that country, until eventually put to death by the Pagans at Sens. It must, however, be borne in mind that many moderns post-date these Martyrs to the third century.
