Saints Maurus, Pantelemon and Sergius (died 117 A.D.) are second century Christian martyrs venerated at Bisceglia on the Adriatic. Their story may be inaccurate, but tradition holds that Maurus was from Bethlehem and was sent to be the first bishop of Bisceglia by Saint Peter. They were killed during the persecutions of Christians under the Roman emperor Trajan.[1]
