ST. VINCENT, MARTYR IN AGENOIS

HE was a Levite, that is, probably a deacon, and preached the faith in Gaul in the second or third century. Being seized by the pagans at Agen, he was condemned by the governor to be laid flat on the floor with his body stretched out and fixed on the ground by four pointed stakes; in that posture, he was most cruelly scourged and afterwards beheaded. St. Gregory of Tours and Fortunatus of Poitiers testify, that in the sixth and seventh centuries many flocked from all parts of Europe to Agen in pilgrimages to his tomb. See St. Gregory of Tours, Hist. Francor.1. 7, c. 35, and1. de Glor Mart., c. 105, Mart. Rom. June 9.
