Catechumen Revocatus

Sts Revocatus, Felicitas, Saturninus and Secundulus were catechumens who were arrested with St Perpetua were her brother Saturus.

The martyrs were led from the prison into the amphitheatre. Saturninus and Revocatus had to face a leopard and a bear. The martyrs were then led to a certain spot to be put to death by the sword. They received the crown of martyrdom about the year 203.

The amphitheatre where these saints perished is located a few miles from the city of Tunis. In 1881, a room was discovered opposite the modern entrance into the arena. Some say this was a cell where the victims waited to be brought into the arena.
