Summary

An Italian version of the extremely popular legend of the martyrdom of the Theban Legion, supposedly decimated in the reign of Diocletian and Maximian because so many of its officers and men adhered to the Christian faith. The massacre is supposed to have taken place at St. Maurice-en-Valais (now in Switzerland). The commander of the legion (which was composed entirely of men from the Thebaid in Egypt) was Maritius, later canonized.
