Victor served under Roman Emperor Maximian as an army officer, but his preachings in favor of Christianity as opposed to pagan idols caused his imprisonment by the Emperor. After converting soldiers in prison and knocking over a statue of Jupiter, Victor’s foot was removed and his body was to be crushed by a millstone. When the mill had broken down, he was beheaded; The cave his remains are in is home to many miracles.
