    St Victor of Marseilles

    Celebrated on July 21st

    The tomb of Saint Victor in Marseilles, was one of the most popular pilgrim shrines in western Europe, from the 9th century onwards. According to early writings about him, he was a Christian soldier martyred at Marseilles in about 290, during the persecutions of Maximian. After his conversion he refused to pay homage to pagan gods, was arrested, imprisoned, tortured and eventually put to death.

    St Victor is one of many soldiers in the great armies of Rome who became Christian once they heard the Word of God.

    His feast today is still kept in many parts of the Christian world.

    He is depicted on two rood screens in Devon, at Tor Brian and Wolborough, dressed as a soldier, but holding a windmill.
