SS. BASILIDES, QUIRINUS, OR CYRINUS, NABOR, AND NAZARIUS, MARTYRS

SS. GELASIUS and Gregory the Great, in their sacramentaries, the ancient Roman Calendar published by F. Fronto, and the true Martyrology of Bede, make honorable mention of these four martyrs, who suffered at Rome, and were interred on the Aurelian road. According to the acts of their martyrdom, they were four soldiers in the army of Maxentius, son of Maximian Herculius; and after suffering many torments, were beheaded by the command of Aurelius, prefect of Rome. St. Chrodegang, bishop of Metz, in 756, having procured the relics of several martyrs from Rome, he placed those of St. Gorgonius in the abbey of Gorze, four leagues from Metz; those of St. Nazarius in that of Lorch, or Lausheim, in the diocese of Worms; and those of St. Nabor in that of St. Hilary on the Moselle, since corruptly called St. Avol’s, i. e., St. Nabor’s in the diocese of Metz. See Paul the deacon, Rabanus Maurus, Notker, &c.
