THE MARTYRS OF TRIERS

ST. PAULINUS, bishop of Triers, highly extolled by St. Athanasius, St. Hilary, and St. Jerom, suffered grievous persecutions under the Arian emperor Constantius, and was banished by him into Phrygia, where he died. A beautiful church bears his name out of the walls of Triers, served by a college of canons, and enriched with relics of many martyrs crowned under the president Rictius Varus and the emperor Maximian Herculeus. They are mentioned in the Acts of SS. Fucian and Victoricus in Bouquet, &c. See on them Brower, Bue the Bollandist, p. 329, &c. The incredible number of these martyrs is denied by Honthemius, Diss. de Martyr. Trevir.
