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 the Synaxarion of Constantinople and in the Lavreotic Codex, reference is made to the "Raising of Lazarus" - the Holy and Just Lazarus, the friend of Christ. He is also commemorated on Lazarus Saturday, and on October 17 (uncovering and translation of his relics).[1]
    The entry for October 17 in the Prologue from Ohrid confirms that:
    • "Lazarus's principle feasts are on March 17 and Lazarus Saturday during Great Lent."[2]
  3. ^ "3. Surnamed Ruim (or Ruiminn); commemorated March 17, was the son of Ernan, and a near relative of St. Columba, and of the early abbots of Hy. Leaving Ireland, he went first to Iona, and then into a solitary place. There he lived for several years, while his uncle, Segenius, was abbot of the island. He died March 17, 677."[16]

  6. ^ As recorded in the Lavreotic Codex, the whole earth was quaking for several days. Then a great section of the Walls of Constantinople fell, churches were broken, and houses fell. The Emperor together with the Patriarch and the people made litanies before the Holy Cross and the Holy Relics and the Icons of the Saints, and prayed with tears and fasting for the mercy of God to turn away his wrath. The Lord became the hope of all, and the great earthquake ceased.
