Saint Crispoldus Biography

St Crispoldus was the Bishop of Bettona, Italy where he was known as a miracle worker. He may also have been the bishop of Nocera, Italy. He was arrested by order of prefect Asterius in the late 3rd-century persecutions of emperor Maximian, ordered to sacrifice to pagan gods, and then tortured and died as a martyr together with another Christian, named Barontius, when he refused to do so.

A church was built on the site of the execution.
