Abstract A mediaeval Latin manuscript has preserved the Passion of a fifth-century Persian martyr, Vamnes, who is totally unknown in the hagiographic and liturgical sources of the various Oriental Christian communities. In determining the historical value of the text we show the probability of an underlying Syriac original which had probably been translated into Greek before being translated into Latin.
