Saint Agapitus was a martyr of Praeneste (Palestrina) not far from Rome. He suffered in his youth about the year 275. His cultus, which is very ancient, was particularly popular in the eternal city where Felix III (492) caused a church to be built in his honor. Ancient inscriptions show clearly the great confidence placed in the intercession of this martyr.
