His family trusted he would wed, however Malchus felt a call to the religious life and disappeared from home and turned into a priest; he lived as a veggie lover, eating just dates, cheddar and milk.

At the point when Malchus’ dad passed on, he left the religious community against his abbot’s requests to return home and help his family. Out and about he and a gathering of pioneers were grabbed by Saracen plunderers and sold into subjugation. He was compelled to wed another slave, however, changed over her to Christianity, and the two lived as sibling and sister.
