caption: VITALE and VALERIA saints and martyrs (III / IV century). According to the Golden Legend, in Nero's time the consular soldier Vitale wanted to bury a Christian way of Ursicinus body, after having comforted and assisted in the torture. Having thus revealed his own faith was buried alive. His wife Valeria, mother of their children Gervasio and Protasio, too holy, tried in vain to recover the corpse; on the way back was taken by a group of pagans who wanted to force her to recant and undergo sylvan rites, he was martyred for the strenuous denial. According to recent historical studies, the affair is considered more late, to be placed between the third and fourth centuries. Commemoration on April 28. colored engraving, Italy 1886
