Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Saint Maximus of vreux (d. ca. 384), called Saint Mauxe locally, is venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. His legend states that he was the second bishop of vreux, and that he died a martyr at Acquigny with his brother, who was his deacon. His brother is called Venerandus (V n rand) or Victorinus.Their legend states that they were natives of Brescia. Maximus was a bishop and Victorinus was a deacon. They attempted to make converts to Christianity amongst the ranks of the barbarian armies, but failed. The brothers were sent by Pope Damasus I to preach in Gaul instead, to continue the work of Saint Taurinus (Taurin) in the region. Taurinus is considered the first bishop of vreux. They traveled to Gaul with two priests, Mark and Etherius, passing through Auxerre, Sens, and Paris until they reached vreux, where Maximus became bishop (the years of his episcopate are sometimes given as 411-440, which conflict with the traditional date of his martyrdom).
