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. ^ "IN Thebais, St. Anthony, abbot and spiritual guide of many monks. He was most celebrated for his life and miracles, of which St. Athanasius has written a detailed account. His sacred body was found by divine revelation, during the reign of the emperor Justinian, and brought to Alexandria, where it was buried in the church of St. John the Baptist."[4]
  3. ^ St Gregory the Great, who was their Abbot, has left an account of their virtues and miraculous power.
  4. ^ "At Bourges, the demise of St. Sulpicius, surnamed Pius, whose life and precious death are adorned with glorious miracles."[4]
  5. ^ The youngest of the three holy virgins of Minster-in-Thanet in England - Milburgh, Mildred and Mildgyth.
  6. ^ "ST. MlLDGYTH was the youngest of the three saintly daughters of Merewald and St Ermenburga. When her mother returned to Kent, it is probable that Mildgyth accompanied her, as she must then have been of a tender age, and that she remained with her at Minster for some time. Like her sisters, St. Milburga and St. Mildred, she was favoured with a vocation to the religious life, and the place chosen for her retreat was some monastery in the kingdom of Northumbria, the name of which is not known. The ancient record merely says: St. Milgith lies in Northumbria, where her miraculous powers were often exhibited, and still are."[12]
  7. ^ A monk who in 752 founded the monastery of St Zeno at Isen. In 764 he became third Bishop of Freising in Germany. His relics are in Isen.
  8. ^ Venerable Anthony Cantacuzène was the son of Maria Kantakouzene (the daughter of Emperor John VI Kantakouzenos), who married Nikephoros II Orsini the Despot of Epirus.
