Eulampiust and Eulampia were brother and sister from nicomedia. At that time of vishious persicuting of christians by the emporer Maxsimion. Some of the faithful of nicomedia fled from the city and hid. The young Eulampiust was sent into the city to get bread. Entering it he saw the empirial decree on the pursecution and killing of christions. Eulampiust looked at it and laughed so he took it down and started riping and tearing it so he was took to trial. -Emmeline
