Notes[edit]

    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 was born into a pagan family from Cappadocia, but was baptized at a young age in secret from his parents. When his father found this out, he banished him from the family estate. The local magistrate tried to force him to renounce Christ and sacrifice to idols, but the saint remained steadfast in his faith, and was martyred by beheading in 251 AD.
  3. ^ The Holy Martyress Theodosia of Tyre suffered in the year 308. On 29 May is celebrated the transfer of her relics to Constantinople, and later on to Venice.[6]
  4. ^ He is listed among the saints of the Church of Antioch.
  5. ^ Born in Silly near Poitiers in France, he was a brother of St Maxentius of Poitiers. In 333 he became Bishop of Trier in Germany and was the valiant defender and host of St Athanasius of Alexandria and St Paul of Constantinople, exiled by the Arian Emperor. He was a prominent opponent of Arianism at the Councils of Milan, Sardica and Cologne and one of the most courageous bishops of his time.
  6. ^ By tradition from Cappadocia, they were received by St Vigilius of Trent in Italy on the recommendation of St Ambrose. They were sent to enlighten the Tyrol in Austria and martyred by pagans.
  7. ^ Votus and Felix were brothers from Saragossa in Spain who found a hermitage in the Pyrenees which was already inhabited by John (John de Atares). The three lived together and reposed at about the same time. The hermitage was situated beneath a huge rock (Peña) where the monastery of St John de la Peña later grew up.
  8. ^ A hermit in the Pyrenees in Spain. He lived beneath a huge rock, where the monastery of St John de Ia Peña (of the Rock) was later built. This is famous in Spanish history, since the monastery became the cradle of the Kingdoms of Navarre and Aragon.
  9. ^ Son of St Gerold, he became a monk at the monastery of Einsiedeln in Switzerland. After his father's death he retired to live as a hermit in the latter's cell.
  10. ^ On this date in 1453, Constantinople, the capital city of the Christian world, was sacked by the forces of Sultan Mehmet (Mohammed) II, bringing it under Turkish rule, where it remains to this day. Constantine XII, the last Byzantine Emperor, died defending the city. Sources are sharply divided as to whether he is to be counted as a Christian Martyr. The designation "Blessed Constantine", above, is from the St. Herman Calendar, whose compilers cite Russian martyrologies which list him as a saint. However, the Prologue cites the fall of Constantinople while pointedly omitting any praise of Constantine. He accepted (and never publicly renounced) the false "union" of Florence, and so is counted by some as a heretic. Many Orthodox Christians, including many of the people of Constantinople, saw the city's fall as divine retribution for the Empire's acceptance of the union. Before his death the Emperor donned soldier's armor and helped to man the ramparts of the City; his body was never found. Though various legends abound, the most likely explanation is that he died with many other defenders and was cast with them into a common grave.[21]
  11. ^ The Holy Martyr John (Nannos) of Soluneia (Thessalonika) was martyred by the Turks in the year 1802 in the city of Smyrna.
  12. ^ The new-martyr Saint Euthymios, known in the world as Agritellis, was born in 1872 in Parakoila on Lesvos, where he started his education. At the age of nine, he entered Leimonos monastery as a child and was tonsured a monk eight years later, in 1899. He completed his general education at the monastery, and was then sent by the brotherhood to the Theological School of Halki, where he studied from 1900 to 1907. After his graduation, he returned to the monastery, having been ordained as a deacon. He then became a teacher, and was head of the Leimonos School. In 1908 he was ordained priest, and from 1911 until his death on May 1921, served the people of the diocese of Zela on the Pontus as their Bishop. It was because of his actions in support of the Greek side in the War in Asia Minor that he was captured by the Turkish armed forces on January 21, 1921. After suffering terrible tortures he gave up his soul to the Lord on May 29th, 1921. Among the manuscripts at Leimonos Monastery, there are fifty items written in his hand, most of which are notebooks from the time of his studies in Halki.[27]
  13. ^ The Icon of the Mother of God "Non-Slumbering Eye" ("Nedremliuschee Oko") was presented as a gift offering by the daughter of a former preacher Rodion Putyatin, and situated in a monastery chapel in the city of Rybinsk. The wonderworking image was famed for numerous healings. The title "Non-Slumbering Eye" bestown upon the icon is in connection with the inscription beneathe the image: "I may sleep, but My heart is awake" (Song of Solomon 5:2).[32]
  14. ^ The Icon of the Mother of God "Imperial" ("Tsesarkaya") Borovsk is known of from the 12th century. At first the wonderworking image appeared in the locality of Usvyat, Vitebsk district. The icon was found nearby a cemetery church, located in the vicinity of Bor, from whence it received the name Borovsk. The Imperial-Tsesarsk is called such because it was a copy from the ancient wonderworking Imperial Icon, glorified in the year 792 (commemorated April 9). From the cemetery church the icon was transferred to the Saviour-Transfiguration church at Usvyat. About the miraculous signs and healings from the image of the Mother of God, numerous accounts are preserved. In 1859 at Usvyat and its surroundings there raged a cholera epidemic, taking away many lives. With deep faith the inhabitants turned for help to the image of the Heavenly Queen, and the sickness ceased. In that same year of 1859 the MostHoly Synod established the celebration of the Tsesarsk-Borovsk Icon of the Mother of God under 29 May.[33]
