He was gradu- ally promoted until he became the leader of the Theban legion, formed of 6,600 soldiers garri- soned in Thebes. Maurice was an acknowledged Christian at a time when the Church was considered to be a threat to the Roman Empire, yet he was ac- cepted in the pagan society of his day. The Legion had converted en masse to Christianity and, headed by Maurice, was or- dered to Gaul by the Emperor Maximiam, to assist against the rebels of Bagaudae (Bur- gundy). After the revolt was quelled, the Emperor issued an order that the whole army should join offering sacrifices to the Roman gods for the success of their mission. The order included killing Chris- tians (probably as a sacrifice to the Roman gods). Only the Theban Legion dared to refuse to comply with the orders. The legion withdrew itself, and encamped near Agaunum. To engage in wanton slaughter was inconceivable to Christian soldiers, Maurice declared. Ordering the unit to be pun- ished, Maximian had every Painted panel from the outer right-hand wing of a polyptych. The young man wears the crown of a nobleman and carries the red and white military pennant and shield of the Holy Roman Empire, circa 1447. From Weiner Neustadt Abbey, Stefansdom, Vienna. He is claimed to be Saint Maurice. tenth soldier killed, a military punishment known as deci- mation. More orders followed, the men refused as encour- aged by Maurice, and a second decimation was ordered. In response to the Theban Chris- tians' refusal to attack fellow Christians, Maximian ordered all the remaining members of the 6,600 unit to be executed. The place in Switzerland where this occurred, then known as Agaunum, is now named Saint Maurice-en-Valais, site of the Abbey of Saint Maurice-en- Valais. Not all the men of the legion were at Agaunum at the time of the massacre. Others were posted along the military highway linking Switzerland with Germany and Italy. These were progressively and methodically martyred wher- ever they were found. The bodies of the martyrs of Agaunum were discovered and identified by Saint Theodore, the Bishop of Octudurm, who was in office in 350 AD. He built a Basilica in their honor at Agaunum, the remains of which are visible today. The sword of Saint Maurice, was last used in the coronation of the Austrian Emperor as King of Hungary in 1916. Saint Maurice's feast day is celebrated on September 22"a. Hollywood Legends ACROSS 1. Buzz off 6. Dunce 9. Back of the neck 13. Big Dipper shape 14. Rejuvenating spot 15. Succeed 16. Helped 17.
