Saints Vincent, Orontius, and Victor
Born Cimiez (Vincent and Orontius)
Died ~305 AD, Puigcerda
Venerated in Roman Catholic Church
Feast January 22

Saints Vincent, Orontius, and Victor (d. 305 AD) are venerated as martyrs by the Roman Catholic Church. Tradition states that Vincent and Orontius were brothers from Cimiez. They were Christians who evangelized in the Pyrenees and were killed at Puigcerda with Saint Victor.[1][2]

Vincent should not be confused with the more famous Vincent of Saragossa, who is honored on the same feast day.

Veneration

Their relics were enshrined at Embrun,[1] in a sanctuary built by Palladius of Embrun.[3]
