Apostle Quartus of the Seventy

The holy Apostles Quartus, Erastus, Sosipater (April 28), and Tertius (October 30) were disciples of St Paul. The Apostle to the Gentiles speaks of St Quaratus in the Epistle to the Romans “And Erastus, the city treasurer, greets you, and Quartus, a brother” (Rom 16: 23).

St Quartus endured much suffering for his piety and converted many pagans to Christ, dying peacefully as a bishop in the city of Beirut.
