  2. ^ The memory of Saint Theodotos, who hailed from Cyprus and lived during the time of Emperor Licinius (307-323 AD), is recorded in the Synaxaristes and in the Menaia on two occasions: on the 19th or 17th of January, the day of his release from prison; and on March 2, the day of his repose. The saint was persecuted and suffered much for his faith in Christ. He reposed peacefully however, likely in the period of Constantine the Great.
  3. ^ "At Spoleto, in the days of the emperor Antoninus, the passion of St. Pontian, martyr, who was barbarously scourged for Christ by the command of the judge Fabian, and then compelled to walk barefoot on burning coals. As he was uninjured by the tire, he was put on the rack, was torn with iron hooks, and then thrown into a dungeon, where he was comforted by the visit of an angel. He was afterwards exposed to the lions, had melted lead poured over him and finally died by the sword."[14]
  4. ^ A holy virgin in Foligno in Italy. She visited Bishop Felician of Foligno in prison, was denounced as a Christian and clubbed to death.
  5. ^ Marius, a Persian nobleman, his wife Martha, and their two sons, Audifax and Abachum, travelled to Rome to venerate the tombs of the Apostles. While there, they also buried the bodies of those being martyred in the persecution of Claudius II. They too were arrested, the three men beheaded and St Martha drowned.
  6. ^ "AT Rome, on the Cornelian road, the holy martyrs Marius and his wife Martha, with their sons Audifax and Abachum, noble Persians, who came to Rome, through devotion, in the time of the Emperor Claudius. After they had been beaten with rods, tortured on the rack and with fire, lacerated with iron hooks, and had endured the cutting off of their hands, Martha was put to death in the place called Nympha, The others were beheaded and cast into the flames."[14]
  7. ^ Born in Sicily, he became Bishop of Lodi in Lombardy in Italy. He was much esteemed by St Ambrose of Milan, with whom he attended the Council of Aquilia (381) and at whose repose he was present (390).
  8. ^ A shepherd boy near Chartres in France and then priest, he became a hermit. Disciples came and he founded the monastery of Corbion near Chartres. He lived to be over a hundred.
  9. ^ King Athelstan, who founded the monastery of Milton in Dorset in England translated relics of the saint there in 935 AD:
    "When King Athelstan had founded the Abbey of Middleton, he was careful to enrich the church with many precious relics, which he collected from various parts of the world from Rome, from the Continental Brittany, and many other places. Among these sacred treasures was an arm of ST. BRANWALLATOR, Bishop, whose name was associated with those of our Blessed Lady, St. Michael, and St. Samson, in the dedication of the church. Who St. Branwallator was, we have no information; but from his name, it may be inferred that he was a Briton, whether a native of this island or of the Continent."[16]
  10. ^ Born of a wealthy family in Scotland, he became a hermit and was praised for earning his living by tilling the soil, 'which comes closest to divine contemplation'. He became a bishop and lived in Tullicht.
