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.
