Feast day: February 24

Saint Montanus was martyred along with Flavian, Julian, Lucius, Victoricus, and five other companions under the persecution of Valerian. Montanus and his fellows were disciples of Saint Cypiran of Carthage. The 10 companions did not waver in their Christian faith when revolt broke out in Carthage and was blamed on the Christians. These holy men were tortured and beheaded in 259.
