Castrensis, Saint

Castrensis, Saint was celebrated in South Italy as an African bishop of note, who, in some barbarian persecution, both of clergy and laity (perhaps between 496 and 522) was taken with eleven other bishops and put on board an 1Oda ship, which carried them to Sinuessa, or Volturno, where he died, Feb. 1 (Tillemont, 16, 607, 608). It seems more probable that the name is only the title taken from his see, and that he may be the Candidianus, bishop of Castra, in Mauritania Caesariensis, who is given in a list of bishops persecuted, by Huneric (A.D. 484). His legend is given from two MSS. in the Acta Sanctorum, Feb. 2, 523.
