Book of Saints – Sergius and Bacchus

Saint BacchusArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (October 7) (2nd century) Romans by birth and officers in the Imperial army, who were put to death by order of Diocletian or of one of his colleagues, towards the end of the third century. The prolix accounts written in the early Middle Ages of their glorious deaths for Christ seem of too late date to be really reliable. But the extension of their cultus throughout the Church was so rapid as to indicate distinctive features in their Passion.
