Kutoka Wikipedia, kamusi elezo huru
Basilika la Wat. Yohane na Paulo mjini Roma, masalia ya wafiadini wa Scilla yanapotunzwa.

Wafiadini wa Scilla ni kundi la Wakristo 12 (wanaume 7 na wanawake 5) kutoka Scilla (leo Kasserine) waliouawa kwa ajili ya imani yao tarehe 17 Julai 180 huko Karthago, katika Tunisia ya leo.

Majina[1] yao ni: Speratus, Nartzalus, Cintinus (Cittinus)[2], Veturius, Felix, Aquilinus,[3] Laetantius, Januaria, Generosa, Vestia, Donata[4] na Secunda.[5]

Masimulizi ya Matendo yao ni maandishi ya kwanza ya Kanisa la Afrika na mfano wa kwanza wa Kilatini cha Kikristo.

Sita kati yao walikuwa wameshahukumiwa. Kati ya waliobaki, wanaozungumziwa zaidi na Matendo hayo, Speratus alikuwa msemaji mkuu. [6]

Tangu kale wanaheshimiwa na Wakatoliki na Waorthodoksi kama watakatifu wafiadini.[7]

Sikukuu yao huadhimishwa siku ya kifodini chao[8][9].

  6. He claimed for himself and his companions that they had lived a quiet and moral life, paying their dues and doing no wrong to their neighbors. But when called upon to swear by the name of the emperor, he replied "I recognize not the empire of this world; but rather do I serve that God whom no man hath seen, nor with these eyes can see." The response was a reference to the language of 1 Tim 6:16. In reply to the question, "What are the things in your satchel?", he said "Books and letters of Paul, a just man." The martyrs were offered a delay of 30 days to reconsider their decision, which they all refused.
