Cyriacus said to have been pope, and, according to Romish tradition, to have, for the sake of St. Ursula and her 11,000 maidens, forsaken the papal see to suffer martyrdom with them at Cologne (Aug. 8th). His existence is probably as mythical and fictitious as that of the 11,000 virgins. The church and college of St. Cyriac (formerly St. Dionysii), at Neuhausen; near Worms, claims to have possessed his relics since the beginning of the 9th century.
