Saint Aemilianus (or Aemilius) lived in the 5th century AD, and is known as a physician, confessor, and martyr.[1] In the reign of the Arian Vandal King Huneric (477–484 AD), he became enmired in the Arian persecution in Africa. When he would not convert to Arianism he was put to death by being flayed alive.[2] The Roman church celebrates his memory on December 6, the Greek church on December 7.[3][4][5]
