Who were the holy protomartyrs of Rome?

On June 30, the Church commemorates the holy protomartyrs of Rome, who died during the first persecution against the Catholic Church, which was unleashed in the second half of the first century.

They suffered terrible torments and gave their lives just to call themselves “Christians,” followers of Jesus of Nazareth.

Consequently, they were granted the title of “protomartyrs” — a term from ancient Greek — which means “first martyrs” or “first witnesses.”
