Long Description:
CS:
Za vlády císare Diokleciána byl jednou z obetí jeho zásahu prostrednictvím ctyr protikrestanských ediktu z let 303 a 304. Dnešní území Rakouska do té doby patrilo rímské provincii Noricum a císar Dioklecián tuto provincii pripojil k Pannonii. V okolí dnešního Lince, v meste Lauriacum (neboli Lorch) u soutoku Enže s Dunajem, dal jeho místodržitel Aquilinus pozavírat a usmrtit mnoho zdejších krestanu. Když se to Florian dozvedel, spechal krestanum na pomoc. Nebyl však dostatecne opatrný a po nekolika dnech byl zatcen a pod neustálým týráním mel zaprít Krista. Protože se nechtel za žádnou cenu víry zríct a soud nevzal ohledy na jeho zásluhy v armáde a jeho bezúhonný život, vydal ho do rukou katu. Ti mu dne 4. kvetna r. 304 privázali na krk mlýnský kámen a hodili ho do reky Enže poblíž rímské osady Lauriacum (dnes Lorch, cást obce Enns v Rakousku). Pohreb byl nedaleko Lince, v místech kde dnes leží mestys Sankt Florian, a nad jeho hrobem byl už v 6. století vystaven augustiniánský klášter.

When it Florian learned Christians rushed to help. But he was not careful enough and after a few days he was arrested and was under constant abuse to deny Christ . Because he did not want at any price renounce faith and court disregarded the merits of his army and his blameless life , delivered him into the hands of executioners . Those him on 4 May the year 304 tied to the neck the millstone and threw it into the river Enns nearby Roman settlement Lauriacum ( today Lorch , part of the village Enns in Austria).
