Saints of the Day – Tigirius and Eutropius, Martyrs


Died 404. Tigirius was a priest and Eutropius a reader in the church of Constantinople. Both were loyal supporters of their bishop Saint John Chrysostom, who was severely persecuted. When Saint John was banished, they were falsely accused of setting fire to the cathedral and senate-house of Constantinople. For this they were tortured to the point where Eutropius died. Tigirius survived and is said to have been exiled (Benedictines, Encyclopedia).
