Description

Saint Maurice (also Moritz, Morris, or Mauritius) was according to tradition the leader of the legendary Roman Theban Legion in the 3rd century, and one of the favorite and most widely venerated saints of that group. He was the patron saint of several professions, locales, and kingdoms. He is also a highly revered saint in the Coptic Orthodox Church and other Oriental Orthodox churches.

According to the hagiographical material, Maurice was an Egyptian, born in AD 250 in Thebes, an ancient city in Upper Egypt that was the capital of the New Kingdom (1575-1069 BCE).

Maurice became a soldier in the Roman army. He was gradually promoted until he became the leader of the Theban legion, formed of 6600 soldiers.  He was an acknowledged Christian at a time when the Church was considered to be a threat to the Roman Empire. He and his men were martyred when he refused to kill Christians for the Emperor. He died in Switzerland where this occurred, in a place known as Agaunum.
