Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume V: May.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
May 8
St. Victor, Martyr at Milan
 
ST. AMBROSE speaks of him, 1 and St. Gregory of Tours 2 mentions his tomb famed for miracles. He served in the armies of Maximian, and by his order was tortured on the rack, and at length beheaded at Milan, in 303. His celebrated church at Milan, is now in the hands of the Olivetan monks, by whom it was rebuilt in a most sumptuous manner and in a finished taste, when St. Charles performed the dedication of it, and the solemn translation of the martyr’s relics. See the Bollandists.  1
