St. Eugene - Feast Day (Memorial) on January 4th

St. Eugene was martyred (c. 484) by the Arian Hunneric, king of the Vandals, along with six other holy martyrs: Saint Aquilinus, Saint Geminus, Saint Marcian, Saint Quintus, Saint Theodotus, and Saint Tryphon.  Blessed Bede had access to records about them, and wrote of their heroic deaths, but his sources have not survived.
