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. ^ Materials for the Leavetaking of the Nativity are taken from the service of the Feast day itself in the Menaion. The Scripture readings at Liturgy, however, are of the day, not of the Feast. The Prokeimenon, Alleluia verses, and Communion hymn are all of the Feast.[24]
  3. ^ "St. Zoticus, Roman priest, who went to Constantinople, and took upon himself the care of orphans."[16]
  4. ^ Melania the Younger and Pinian: Melania was the granddaughter of St Melania the Elder. Born in Rome, she married a man called Pinian (Valerius Pinianus). They had two children who died young. About the year 410 they left Rome, the former entering a monastery and the latter a convent in Jerusalem.[15]
  5. ^ He is unknown in the Synaxaria, however he is venerated as a local Saint of the Church of Cyprus (Patmos Codex 266).
  6. ^ Born in Spain, she left her country to avoid being denounced as a Christian. She went to France with other Spanish Christians, but all of them were martyred near Meaux under Aurelian. Her shrine was in Sens.
  7. ^ A group of Roman women martyred in one of the early persecutions. Their relics were enshrined in the catacombs of the Via Salaria.
  8. ^ Sabinian is honoured as the first Bishop of Sens in France. Potentian was perhaps his successor. Both were martyred.
  9. ^ Silvester came from Rome and served the Church as Pope from 314 to 335, helping convert St Constantine. Most of his relics are enshrined in San Silvestro in Capite in Rome.
  10. ^ A priest from Antioch who went to Rome and there attracted the attention of the Empress, Placidia Augusta, through his wise counsel. She encouraged him to live in Ravenna in Italy near the imperial court, where a monastery was built.
  11. ^ The twenty-second Abbot of Subiaco in Italy. For defending his monastery, he was blinded and died in prison.
  12. ^ Formally included in the Ukrainian Orthodox calendar, for his work in support of Orthodoxy in Zakarpattia.[25] See also: (Russian): Досифей (Васич).
