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. ^ "At Thessalonica, St. David, hermit."[6]
  3. ^ "S. David, a hermit at Thessalonica, was so illustrious in the seventh century for his virtues that he became an object of public veneration, and was visited from all quarters. His words were listened to with the greatest attention, he was thought to prophesy, and to work miracles of healing. His powerful appeals to sinners caused the conversion of great numbers."[7]
  4. ^ In 1236 the saints' relics were taken by Crusaders to Pavia, Italy and from there transferred to Milan in 1967. Finally on September 16, 1978 through the efforts of Metropolitan Panteleimon (Chrysofakis) of Thessalonica, the sacred relics of Saint David were triumphantly returned to Thessaloniki and housed in the Basilica of Saint Demetrios the Great Martyr. To celebrate this feast a Service was written by the renowned hymnographer Elder Gerasimos Mikragiannanitis. Eventually the relics were transferred to the Katholikon of the Monastery of Saint Theodora in the middle of Thessaloniki in a chapel surrounded by icons of the Saint's life.
  5. ^ "AT Rome, on Mount Coelius, the holy martyrs John and Paul, brothers. The former was steward, the other secretary of the virgin Constantia, daughter of the emperor Constantine. Afterwards, under Julian the Apostate, they received the palm of martyrdom by being beheaded."[6]
  6. ^ He was stoned to death in the Val di Rendena for overturning a statue of Saturn.
  7. ^ "At Trent, St. Vigilius, bishop, who, whilst he endeavored to root out the remains of idolatry, was overwhelmed with a shower of stones by cruel and barbarous men, and thus endured martyrdom for the name of Christ."[6]
  8. ^ He was highly esteemed by the local population whom he protected from the invading barbarians.
  9. ^ "In Poitou, St. Maxentius, priest and confessor, renowned for miracles."[6]
  10. ^ A holy virgin from Spain who with her sisters Macrina and Columba travelled to Poitiers in France where they founded a convent. While fleeing from a robber, Perseveranda died at a place called after her, Sainte-Pezaine.
  11. ^ "The same day, St. Perseveranda, virgin."[6]
  12. ^ Salvius was a bishop near Angouleme in France who was sent to Valenciennes to enlighten the Flemish. The greed of a noble led to his death and he was hastily buried beneath a martyred companion. When the relics were discovered his anonymous companion was found first and called 'Superius'.
  13. ^ "At Valenciennes, the holy martyrs Salvius, bishop of Angouleme, and Superius."[6]
  14. ^ "When Archbishop Lanfranc was rebuilding the Cathedral of Canterbury, William the Conqueror with much zeal promoted the great work, and showed special favour to the church, restoring to it many possessions which had been confiscated. Among other gifts he bestowed on the new church were the head and principal bones of ST. SALVIUS the Martyr, whose body he had brought from the Continent. This Salvius was Bishop of Angouleme, who had travelled to Valenciennes, in the time of Charles Martel or of Charles the Great, and was most maliciously put to death, together with his companion, by one of the officers of the Treasury."[23]
  15. ^ "Few traditions of any importance relate to this saint. In his Menologium Scotorum, Thomas Dempster has entered a festival at the 26th of June for a St. Corbicanus, whom he makes a companion of St. Adalgisus, Apostle in Belgium. He is believed to have been an Irishman, who came to the Low Countries, and who lived as a solitary. Ferrarius citing a Scottish Martyrology, it is supposed from a suggestion furnished by Camerarius — who passes over Corbicanus — has a feast for him at this date. The Bollandists note this entry, but they state, that Corbican was unknown to the Belgians, as also to the writers of the Life of St. Adalgisus. The Petits Bollandistes notice St. Corbican, an Irishman, at the 26th of June, and they state, that he flourished in the Low Countries, during the eighth century. He is said to have lived on roots and herbs, while instructing the rude peasantry in the word of God. He was afflicted with cramps and agues until he died."[25]
  16. ^ He was offered freedom and other rewards if he would accept Islam. These inducements were repeatedly put before him during the three years that he was kept in prison. On his stubborn refusal, he was tortured, which he endured for six hours before finally reposing. His relics were transferred to Leon in 967 and to Oviedo in 985.
  17. ^ "At Cordova, in Spain, under the Saracen king Abderahman, the birthday of St. Pelagius, a young man who gloriously consummated his martyrdom for the faith by having his flesh torn to pieces with iron pincers."[6]
  18. ^ Born in Tuy in Spain, he founded the monastery of Labrugia in Galicia in 915. He was taken prisoner by the Moors and taken to Cordoba, but was later freed. His nephew, St Pelagius, was kept as a hostage.

  21. ^ Troparion of St Brannock of Braunton tone 1
    "Righteous tutor of the children of Brychan and great wonderworker, O Father Brannock, thou didst win many souls for Christ by thy tireless endeavours. As Braunton's church may yet hold thy precious relics, Pray that we, being ever mindful of our Orthodox heritage, may never deviate from the true Faith and, thereby, receive the reward of the blest."[43]
