ST. GENESIUS, OF ARLES, M.

HE was a public notary in the city of Arles, and a catechumen at a time when Maximian Herculeus arrived there. An imperial edict against the Christians, which was then in force, was put into his hands to transcribe; but he, rather than to concur to such a criminal injustice, threw away his pencil, and secretly left the town in order to hide himself; but he was overtaken, and beheaded on the banks of the Rhone, about the beginning of the fourth century. See his genuine acts in Ruinart. He is mentioned as the glory of the city of Arles, by Prudentius, Hymn. 7, v. 36, by St. Gregory of Tours, St. Eucherius, and the ancient martyrologies.
