  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. ^ Aipeia or Epia was an ancient city in Cyprus. Ancient Greek epic poetry referred to many settlers of the city, all heroes of the Trojan War who arrived in Cyprus after that war. (See: (in Greek): Αιπεία Κύπρου). This bishop may also be confused with Hieromartyr Marcellus, Bishop of Apamea (389), who celebrates on August 14.
  3. ^ King of Kent and High King of England, he protected St Augustine's mission and may have been baptised by him as early as Pentecost 597. Though he never tried to force his subjects into Christianity, thousands followed his apostolic example.
  4. ^ Daughter of Sts Vincent Madelgarus and Waldetrudis and a niece of St Aldegund of Maubeuge in France, she was confided to her aunt's care at this convent, where she became the second abbess.
  5. ^ Sister of Sts Willibald and Winebald. She became a nun at Wimborne in Dorset in England with St Tetta and followed St Lioba to Germany. She reposed as Abbess of Heidenheim, from where her relics were translated to Eichstätt (May 1). Miraculous healings come from the oil which still flows from the rock on which her shrine is placed.
