Martyrs of Celano

statues of Saints Simplicius, Constantius and Victorinus, date and artist unknown; swiped from Santi e BeatiMemorial


Three Christians martyred in the same area at roughly the same time. That’s really all we know, though it didn’t stop writers in later centuries from inventing colourful histories, making them a father and sons, adding saintly family members, earthquakes, close escapes, etc.
