Identity

In hagiography: Forty Martyrs of Sebaste were a group of Roman soldiers martyred under Licinius who were commemorated collectively not only in the Greek church but widely across late antique Christianity. Their Syriac cult is not only attested by a rich textual tradition but also by numerous churches and monasteries including Church of the Forty Martyrs in Mardin, Church of the Forty Martyrs in Karamlish, Dayro d-Modiq, and Dayr Ibn Jājī.
