Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The notation Old Style or (OS) is sometimes used to indicate a date in the Julian Calendar (which is used by churches on the "Old Calendar").
    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ On the fourth day of the Afterfeast of the Dormition, the Church continues to honor the passage of the Most Holy Theotokos from death to life. Just as Christ once dwelt in the virginal womb of His Mother, now He takes Her "to dwell in His courts."[2]
  3. ^ "In Cilicia, the birthday of St. Andrew, tribune, and his military companions, who were converted to Christianity through a miraculous victory they had gained over the Persians. Being accused on this account, they were massacred in the defiles of Mount Taurus by the army of the governor Seleueus, under the emperor Maximian."[7]
  4. ^ "In Palestine, St. Timothy, a martyr, in the persecution of Diocletian, under the governor Urbanus. After overcoming many torments, he was consumed with a slow fire. In the same country suffered also Thecla and Agapius. The former being exposed to the beasts, was torn to pieces by their teeth, and went to her spouse; but Agapius, after enduring many torments, was reserved for greater combats."[7]
  5. ^ "AT Rome, St. Julius, senator and martyr, who was delivered up to the judge Vitellius, and by him thrown into prison. By order of the emperor Commodus, he was beaten with rods until he expired. His body was buried in the cemetery of Calepodius on the Aurelian road."[7]
  6. ^ His life was written by St Gregory of Tours.
  7. ^ "In the neighborhood of Sisteron, in France, blessed Donatus, priest and confessor. Being from his very infancy endowed with the grace of God in an extraordinary manner, he lived the life of an anchoret for many years, and after having been renowned for glorious miracles, went to Christ."[7]
  8. ^ He was sent as an envoy to Spain and wished to venerate the relics of St Eulalia at Merida but reposed before he reached his destination.
  9. ^ Born in Avignon in France, he was appointed governor of the town. After his wife's death he joined the monks of Lérins, where his son St Agricola had preceded him and where he became bishop.
  10. ^ His relics are enshrined in the Cathedral there.
  11. ^ "ST. CREDAN was the eighth Abbot of Evesham in succession to St. Egwin. He governed this great monastery in the time of Offa of Mercia, and his name appears in several charters of that powerful King. There is little record of his Acts during his life, but after death he was venerated as a Saint, and an endowment was made to burn a candle before his sepulchre day and night on his annual festival. About the year 1055, the Abbot Manny erected a shrine in his honour; and when, in consequence of some doubt which had arisen, the authenticity of his relics was tested by fire in the year 1077, the flame refused to touch them. This miracle led to their solemn translation, and during the ceremony, they appeared to the beholders to shine like gold. It was also noticed as a prodigy, that when the tower of the church fell A.D. 1207, and ruined almost everything contained within its walls, the shrine of St. Credan, as well as those of St. Egwin and St. Odulph, remained uninjured."[14]
  12. ^ Leovigild was a monk and pastor in Cordoba in Spain and Christopher a monk of the monastery of St Martin de La Rojana near Cordoba. They were martyred in Cordoba under Abderrahman II. Note, the Roman Martyrology lists them under August 20.
  13. ^ The Translation of his relics took place in 1923. His major shrine is in Naousa, Imathia, Macedonia, Greece.[17]
