A Syrian hermit, captured by the Saracens and sold as a slave. Malchus told St. Jerome that he was born in Nisibia. He was one of the recluses at Khalkis, near Antioch. and set out with a caravan to return home. The caravan was captured by marauding Bedouins, and he was taken prisoner. While a captive, Malchus was forcibly married to a young woman who was already married. They lived as brother and sister until fleeing into the region of caves. While hunting them, their master was killed by a lioness. Malchus went back to Khalkis, and the woman, unable to find her true husband, became a hermitess. Malchus later went to Maronia where he was honored by St. Jerome.
