Vicente, born in Huesca, was Deacon of San Valerio in Zaragoza. Imprisoned by order of Daciano and taken to Valencia, he was whipped, tormented on the easel, roasted on grills, torn to pieces with hooks, burned with red-hot plates, and returned to jail, thrown on pieces of glass. The tyrant defeated, he changed tactics and had Vicente transferred to a soft bed; but, scarcely placed in it, his spirit flew to receive the crown of victory: January 22, 304.
Three centuries later, Anastasius, a Persian monk, with seventy other Christians, suffered for Christ.
