Martyrs of Ceuta

The Martyrs of Ceuta were a group of seven Friars Minor who tried to bring the faith to Muslims in the area of Ceuta, Spain, which borders on modern Morocco.

They were initially treated as madmen, this is because they were street-preaching in Latin and Italian. After three weeks they were ordered to convert to Islam but they adamantly refused and as a consequence, they were first abused in the streets, then arrested, tortured, executed and beheaded and died as martyrs in October 1227 in Mauritania Tingitana, Almohad Empire now in modern Ceuta, Spain.

The local Christians secretly took the bodies away and gave them a proper burial in Ceuta.

On January 22 1516, they were Beatified by Pope Leo X.
