Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Maurus of Parentium is the patron saint of the Croatian city of Pore, called Parentium in Roman times. The Church has existed in Istria since the times of the early Christian martyrs. St. Maurus (sv. Mavro) was the first bishop of Pore and the Istrian diocese who suffered a martyred death in the late 3rd century. A basilica was built in Pore in the 5th century called Euphrasian Basilica where the relics of Saint Maurus, now the patron saint of the city, are kept in the votive chapel called martyrium. He is shown on the mosaic of the basilica with a martyr's crown in his hand.
