Quick Reference

British martyrs of Caerleon, c.304. These are mentioned by Gildas and Bede. Nothing is known of them except their martyrdom, which has been called into question because there is doubt about Diocletian's persecution being carried out in Britain. However, there are dedications to these saints in and near Caerleon, testified by Gerald of Wales and the Book of Llan Dav. Feast: 1 July.

Bede, H.E., i. 7 (citing Gildas, De Excidio, 10–11); B.L.S., vii. 4; Baring-Gould and Fisher, i. 101–3.
