Book of Saints – Theogenes and Others


(Saints) Martyrs (January 26) (3rd century) Saint Theogenes, a Bishop of Hippona, now Bona (the African See, afterwards made illustrious by Saint Augustine), attended a Council held at Carthage by Saint Cyprian about the middle of the third century. He, with thirty-six of his flock, was put to death as a Christian under the Emperor Valerian about A.D. 258. But the Acts of their Martyrdom have been lost. Hence some controversy among modern scholars as to the date and place of their Passion. Some go so far as to antedate it by a century, and to locate it in Syria. In these theories, the Theogenes of Saint Cyprian’s Council is other than Saint Theogenes the Martyr of January 26.
