Zoilus
Died 304
Feast

Saint Zoilus (d. 304 AD) is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. Christian tradition states that he was a young man martyred with nineteen others at Córdoba, Spain under Diocletian.

Veneration

His name is mentioned by Prudentius and his name appears in the Hieronymian Martyrology as well as the Roman Martyrology.

Their relics were enshrined at the abbey named after him: the Benedictine abbey of San Zoilo de Carrión at Carrión de los Condes, in the province of León. There was also a monastery near Córdoba dedicated to him. Some of the subsequent Martyrs of Cordoba were associated with this monastery.

His feast was also celebrated at Chester[1]; he was anciently and incorrectly considered to have reigned by the city's inhabitants.
