Saints Castus and Emilius (died 250 AD) are venerated as saints and martyrs by the Catholic Church. They are praised by Saint Cyprian and Augustine of Hippo. When they were imprisoned, Castus and Emilius denied that they were Christians under torture and were released. When they were arrested a second time, they refused to abjure Christianity and were burned to death. Their feast day is May 22.[1][2]
