Martyr Bacchus in Morea

The Holy Martyrs Bacchus, Barbarus the Soldier, Callimachus and Dionysius lived during the fourth century and served in the army of the emperor Julian the Apostate.

When the military commander Bacchus and two soldiers, Callimachus and Dionysius, saw St Barbarus healed by an angel, they believed in Christ and repudiated the pagan gods. For this, they were immediately beheaded.
