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. ^ He is unknown in the Synaxarion of St. Nicodemus and absent in the Menaia. However his memory is preserved in Parisian Codex 1621. The biography of this martyr is similar to that of the martyr Euplos (Efplus) (August 11), and it is not impossible that due to a scribal error that Euplos became Easios.
  3. ^ Her memory is preserved in the Jerusalemitic Canonarion, pg.120.
  4. ^ The Monk Stephen the New-Radiant was born at Constantinople and received a fine education. Under Patriarch Methodios (82-846) Stephen accepted monastic tonsure and entered amongst the clergy at one of the Constantinople churches. Later he went into seclusion and over a span of 50 years he constantly increased his ascetic efforts. Towards the end of his life the monk acquired from the Lord a great grace, shining in the constellation of the Saints like to the ancient ascetics of the Orthodox Church of old, so that he came to be called the "New-Radiant". According to the prologue-accounts of the Saints, he died in the year 912.[15]
  5. ^ "ST. ETHELGIVA, or ÆTHELGIFU, was the daughter of the great King Alfred and his saintly wife Ethelwida. Recognising her vocation to the religious state, the King built and endowed the monastery at Shaftesbury for her reception. She was appointed Abbess, and after a life of eminent holiness, there ended her days about the year 896."[18]
