From the Prologue

Stephen was Pope of Rome between the years 253-257 A.D. He struggled against the heretic Novatian. He cured Lucilla, the daughter of Nemesius, the tribune and baptized them both. Stephen, with twelve of his clerics, suffered during the reign of Valerian. He was beheaded during the celebration of the Liturgy.
