  2. ^ Saint Lawrence is unknown in the Synaxaristes and in the Menaia. His memory is recorded however in Lavreotic Codex C 24 f. 112a, where it is stated that he suffered martyrdom in the arena from the pagans.
  3. ^ Brother of Sts. Macrina, Basil the Great, Naucratius, and Gregory of Nyssa.
  4. ^ The Venerable Gregory was a monk at the Monastery of Avgaron (Auguron).
  5. ^ Epictetus was a bishop mentioned by St Cyprian.
  6. ^ Accused of breaking a statue of a goddess, she was thrown to the wild beasts and gored to death by a bull.
  7. ^ "At Ancona, St. Marcellinus, bishop, who, according to St. Gregory, miraculously deliverered that city from destruction by fire."[13]
  8. ^ Born near Rouen, he became a monk and helped St Wandrille found Fontenelle. Soon after he himself founded another important monastery in Fécamp in France.
  9. ^ "ST. ADRIAN was born in Africa, but was settled in a religious house near Naples, when the Pope St. Vitalian called him to Rome, with the intention of consecrating him as successor to St. Deusdedit, in the See of Canterbury. At the earnest request of Adrian, the Pope accepted St. Theodore in his place, but on the condition that he should accompany him to England, to be his guide through France, which he had already visited twice, and his adviser in the administration of his diocese; lest Theodore, who was a Greek by birth and education, should be disposed to introduce dangerous novelties into the English Church. The Saints were detained some time in France; and when St. Theodore was able to cross the sea, St. Adrian was still obliged to stay, through the jealousy of Ebroin, Mayor of the Palace, who suspected that he might have some political mission from the Eastern Emperor. At length Adrian also reached Canterbury, and, on the retirement of St. Benet Biscop from the Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul, was appointed to succeed him in his office, a place which he retained till his death. St. Theodore and his faithful counsellor were both men of great learning, in all branches of ecclesiastical discipline, and in their perfect knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages. The benefits of their joint labours were felt throughout the land. Episcopal Sees were multiplied, resident priests established, where hitherto they had not been known, synods held, and Church discipline well settled. One work, in which St. Adrian had a special share, was the establishment of schools, which were eagerly thronged by the youth of England, and spread their benefits far and wide. They had many distinguished pupils, who were as familiar with Greek and Latin as with their native tongue. Among the most illustrious are mentioned St. Aldhelm, Tobias, Bishop of Rochester, and Albinus, who was afterwards Abbot in place of St. Adrian. The Saint long survived St. Theodore, and continued perseveringly in the duties which had been assigned to him, until, after spending thirty-nine years in England, he was called to receive the reward of his labours in the year 710."[15]
  10. ^ "ST. BRITHWALD, or Berctuald, was Abbot of Reculver, in Kent, when, on the death of St. Theodore, he was chosen to succeed him in the primacy of the English Church. Though less learned than his great predecessor, he was nevertheless well versed in the Holy Scriptures, and all other matters belonging to ecclesiastical and monastic discipline. On his appointment he went over to France and received episcopal consecration from Godwin, Archbishop of Lyons, and was not installed till the following year. During his long episcopate of thirty-seven years, St. Brithwald did much in the cause of religion, and many Bishops received consecration at his hands. Though at first opposed to him, he became a friend of St. Wilfrid's, and gladly promulgated the apostolic letters restoring him to his See, using his utmost endeavours to reconcile him with the princes and others, who were hostile to him. At length, worn out with years and labours, St. Brithwald was called to his everlasting rest, and buried near St. Theodore, within the church of the Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul."[15]
  11. ^ In agreement with the Synaxarion, on this day early in the reign of Emperor Basil I (867 AD -), a great and terrible earthquake took place during which the great dome of the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Stigmatos crashed down, as well as that of the Theotokos of Phoros. This fact is recorded in Codex 1578 of the National Library of Paris, but is commemorated there on January 10th.
