ST. DOMNINUS, M.
BEING an officer of the bedchamber to Maximian
Herculeus, when that emperor kept his court at Milan, in 304, the
persecution raging with great violence, he fled secretly towards
Rome; but was overtaken on the Claudian Way, between Parma and
Placentia, and beheaded upon the spot. He was buried in the same
place, and his tomb was glorified by many miracles. A town which
arose up there, and is now an episcopal see, is called from him
Burgo-san-Domnino. See his Acts, and Tillemont, t. 5, p. 136.
