ST. DOROTHEUS OF TYRE, M.

HE was a priest, some say bishop, of Tyre in Phœnicia, and suffered much for the faith under Dioclesian, as the ancient Martyrologies testify. He is said to have survived his torments, and to have reached the times of Julian the Apostate.

St. Theophanes, Anastasius the librarian, and the modern Greeks tell us, that he completed his martyrdom at Odyssopolis in Thrace.* Another Dorotheus, a martyr, chamberlain of Dioclesian, is mentioned by Eusebius, and honored with St. Gorgonius: see the 9th of September.1 The same historian speaks of a third Dorotheus, a priest of Antioch in the same age a most holy man, and perfectly skilled in the scriptures and in the Hebrew tongue.2
