Saints Nabor and Felix, martyrs
St. Ambrose greatly praised these martyrs and multitudes of people flocked to Milan to venerate them. Late legends say that they were Moorish soldiers in the army of Maximian Herculeus, stationed at Milan, and that they were beheaded for their faith at Lodi; but these legends are imitated from those of the other soldier martyrs, such as St. Victor of Marseilles, and are historically worthless. The names of SS. Nabor and Felix occur in the canon of the Milanese Mass, and their cultus was widespread in northern Italy.
The short Latin text which orifesses to preserve the "acts" of SS. Nabor and Felix has been printed in the Acta Sanctorum, July, vol. iii. The martyrs are duly commemorated in the "Hieronymianum", and it is impossible to doubt the antiquity of their cult at Milan. See Delehaye's Commentary on that martyrology, and his Les Origines du Culte des Martyrs, pp. 335-337.
