The later canonized Boniface of Tarsus was born in Rome and died around 306 in Tarsus in Cilicia in what is today Turkey martyrdom. The name means "the benefactor". As a non-Christian, he was commissioned by a wealthy Roman woman to find relics of Christian martyrs in Tarsus and to bring them to Rome. When he witnessed the torture and killings in the persecution of Christians under Emperor Galerius (250-311), he was baptized and confessed to Christianity, whereupon he himself had to die from bad luck. His companions brought his bones to Rome, where they were buried on Via Latina.
