Roman tribune and martyr. According to the legendary Acts of Sts. Alexander and Balbina, he was reportedly the jailer of Pope St. Alexander I, being converted with his daughter, St. Balbina. Quirinus was buried in the Catacomb of Praetextatus on the Via Appia, and his name was listed in the Martyrologium Hieronymianum, as well as the Itineraries to the graves of the Roman martyrs. His relics were given by Pope Leo IX to his sister Gepa, abbess of Neuss, in 1050, and were placed in the Church of St. Quirinus in Neuss.
