(Died AD 304)
September AD 304
Socrates & Stephanus are said to be two,
almost forgotten, early martyrs of Britain. Their existence is somewhat
questionable, but they do appear in Martyrologium Hieronymianum MS.50
from Trinity College, Dublin (11th century) and one of the earliest
amplifications of Bede's Martyrology.
Tradition makes them disciples of St.
Amphibalus, converted after his famous, though short-lived, escape from
the Roman authorities during the religious persecutions of the Emperor Diocletian
They were apparently martyred together, it has
been suggested in Monmouthshire; though the reasoning is unclear.
