The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
November 24
St. Chrysogonus, Martyr
 
THE NAME of this holy martyr, who was apprehended at Rome, but beheaded at Aquileia in the persecution of Dioclesian, occurs in the canon of the mass, and is mentioned in the ancient Calendar of Carthage of the fifth century, 1 and in all Western Martyrologies since that time. The church in Rome of which he is titular saint, is mentioned in a council held by Pope Symmachus, and in the epistles of St. Gregory the Great; it gives title to a cardinal priest. The head of St. Chrysogonus is shown there in a rich case; but his body is at Venice.  1
