twelve holy brothers
Question from MARY LOU CHUCHMAN on 8/27/2001:

where can i go for information on the 12 holy brothers? their feast day is September 1st. Can you give me any information on them?

Answer by Dr. William Carroll on 8/27/2001:

We know almost nothing about them. What little is known is summed up in the best of all references for saints, BUTLER'S LIVES OF THE SAINTS as edited, revised, and supplemented by Herbert Thurston, S.J. and Donald Attwater, published in four volumes by Christian Classics of Westminster, Maryland in 1956 and obtainable by inter-library loan. The entry for the 12 brothers is in Volumd Three. - Dr. Carroll
