The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
May 18
St. Venantius, Martyr
 
HE made a glorious confession of his faith, and after suffering many torments was beheaded in the persecution of Decius in 250, at Camerino, a city near the marquisate of Ancona in Italy; of which place he was a native. His body is kept with singular veneration in that city. Pope Clement X. who had been bishop of Camerino, had a particular devotion to this martyr, who suffered very young. See the Bollandists.  1
