Likewise, the Saints Martinian and Saturnian, with their two brothers.  While the persecution of the Vandals was raging in the reign of the Arian king Genseric, they were slaves to a man of that race.  They were converted to the faith of Christ by Maxima, a slave like themselves, and they manifested their attachment to the truth with such courage that they were beaten with rough clubs and lacerated in all parts of their bodies to the very bones.  Although this barbarous treatment was continued for a considerable period, their wounds were each time healed overnight.  They were at length sent into exile where they converted many barbarians to the faith, and obtained from the Roman Pontiff a priest and other ministers to baptize them.  Finally there were condemned to die by having their feet tied behind running chariots and being dragged through thorns.  Maxima, after enduring many tribulations, was miraculously delivered and became the superior of a large monastery of virgins, where she ended her days in peace.
