The modern Roman martyrology places the festival of Sts. Barlaam and Josaphat on Nov. 27 as of two actual saints worshipped by the Indians on the confines of Persia. Huet and others hold the history of these saints to be a mere romance. Baronius, however, receives it as true. See Huet, Orig. des Romans, p. 49. — Landon, Eccles. Dict. s.v.
