Edesi wa Aleksandria (Patara, Lycia, leo nchini Uturuki karne ya 3[1] - Aleksandria, Misri, 306) ni kati ya Wakristo waliouawa kwa ajili ya imani yao.

Alikuwa kijana msomi ambaye aliongokea Ukristo. Katika dhuluma ya kaisari Maximian alijaribu kuzuia ibada ya Kipagani akafungwa na kulazimishwa kufanya kazi migodini huko Palestina[2].

Baada ya kuachiliwa alihamia Misri alipolaumu hakimu kwa kulazimisha mabikira Wakristo kuishi katika madanguro; hapo aliteswa na hatimaye kutoswa baharini[3].

Tangu kale anaheshimiwa kama mtakatifu mfiadini.

Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa tarehe 9 Aprili[4][5] au 2 Aprili pamoja na ndugu yake Apiani wa Kaisarea[6].

  2. The Martyrs of Palestine (De Martyr. Pales.) ch. 5: "Aedesius, a brother of Apphianus, not only in God, but also in the flesh, being a son of the same earthly father, endured sufferings like his, after very many confessions and protracted tortures in bonds, and after he had been sentenced by the governor to the mines in Palestine. He conducted himself through them all in a truly philosophic manner; for he was more highly educated than his brother, and had prosecuted philosophic studies. Finally in the city of Alexandria, when he beheld the judge, who was trying the Christians, offending beyond all bounds, now insulting holy men in various ways, and again consigning women of greatest modesty and even religious virgins to procurers for shameful treatment, he acted like his brother. For as these things seemed insufferable, he went forward with bold resolve, and with his words and deeds overwhelmed the judge with shame and disgrace. After suffering in consequence many forms of torture, he endured a death similar to his brother's, being cast into the sea."
