Apud montem Cassínum sanctæ Scholásticæ Vírginis, soróris sancti Benedícti Abbátis; qui ejus ánimam, instar colúmbæ, migrántem e córpore in cælum ascéndere vidit. On Monte Cassino, St. Scholastica, virgin, whose soul was seen by her brother, St. Benedict, abbot, leaving her body in the form of a dove, and ascending into heaven. Romæ sanctórum Mártyrum Zótici, Irenǽi, Hyacínthi et Amántii. At Rome, the holy martyrs Zoticus, Irenaeus, Hyacinth, and Amantius. Ibídem, via Lavicána, sanctórum decem mílitum Mártyrum. In the same place, on the Via Lavicana, ten holy soldiers, martyrs. Item Romæ, via Appia, sanctæ Sotéris, Vírginis et Mártyris; quæ (ut scribit sanctus Ambrósius), nóbili génere nata, paréntum Consulátus et Præfectúras ob Christum contémpsit. Hæc, jussa idolis immoláre, et non acquiéscens, gráviter et diutíssime álapis cæsa est; et, cum cétera quoque pœnárum génera vicísset, demum, percússa gládio, læta migrávit ad Sponsum. Also at Rome, on the Appian Way, St. Soteris, virgin and martyr, descended of a noble family, but as St. Ambrose mentions, for the love of Christ she set at naught the consular and other dignitaries of her people. Upon her refusal to sacrifice to the gods, she was for a long time cruelly scourged. She overcame these and various other torments, then was struck with the sword; and joyfully went to her heavenly spouse. In Campánia sancti Silváni, Epíscopi et Confessóris. In Campania, St. Silvanus, bishop and confessor. In Stábulo Rhodis, in territorio Senénsi, sancti Guiliélmi Eremítæ.

Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins. R. Deo grátias. R. Thanks be to God.
