    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ Name days celebrated today include:

  3. ^ Their relics were uncovered in 1971, near the village of Nicolitsel (Niculițel), in the region of Tulcea, Romania.
  4. ^ "At Constantinople, St. Metrophanes, bishop and renowned confessor."[14]
  5. ^ According to Saint Nicodemus the Hagiorite, the venerable monk-martyr John was the hegumen of the monastery of Monagria in Cyprus. He was martyred after they tied him in a sack and threw him into the sea.
  6. ^ Roman martyrs who were buried in the catacombs on the Appian Way.
  7. ^ Having fled to escape the persecution of Galerius, he was captured and ordered to sacrifice to the gods. He refused, was barbarously beaten and handed over to the governor of Pannonia Prima at Sabaria, now Szombathely, in Hungary. There, on his continued refusal to apostatise, he was drowned in the River Raab.
  8. ^ "At Sisseck, in Illyria, in the time of the governor Galerius, St. Quirinus, bishop. Prudentius relates that for the faith of Christ he was precipitated into a river, with a milltsone tied to his neck; but as the stone floated on the water, he exhorted for a long time the Christians who were present not to be terrified by his punishment, nor to waver in the faith, and then God heard his prayers to be drowned, that he might attain to the glory of martyrdom."[14]
  9. ^ Bishop of Milevis in Numidia in North Africa. He opposed Donatism, writing six treatises against them which were praised by his contemporaries.
  10. ^ "S. Optatus was an African, and was educated as an idolater, but was converted to Christianity, and became bishop of Milevis in Numidia. He is chiefly known by his books against the Donatists, which is a principal source of information concerning these schismatics in the early portion of their history."[26]
  11. ^ Many miracles are ascribed to her in her legend in the Monastery of the Cross of Quimperle in the Diocese of Quimper in Brittany.[29]
  12. ^ "ST. NlNNOC was the youngest of the many children of Brecan, Prince of Brecknock, and the sister of many Saints. Her pious parents, though not without reluctance, consented to her choice of a solitary life, which she is supposed to have begun at an early age in Cornwall. Afterwards, however, she removed, with a company of priests and devout persons of both sexes, into Brittany, and settled on the coast in the province of Cornouailles. Ninnoc was well received by the prince of the country, who allowed her to found a monastery, and afterwards made provision for its maintenance. She is said to have lived in this spot during thirty-eight years in all the rigorous practices of the religious life, growing in sanctity and accumulating merits, till she was admitted to joys of the heavenly paradise. The reputation of holiness which she left behind was not confined to Brittany, but spread into other lands; and we find that she is invoked in the ancient English Litanies attributed to the seventh century."[30]
  13. ^ "[Venerated in Brittany (invoked in a Breton Litany of the 10th cent.). Authority: — The Acts preserved at Quimper, which are, however, fabulous. They were written in the 13th cent, from oral traditions, and are full of anachronisms, and the Bollandists do not publish them in their entirety. As specimens of the anachronisms we may adduce these. S. Columba (d. 597) is said to have baptized S. Nennocha — two hundred years before she was born! Her mother, Moneduc, is said to have been the daughter of Constantine, king of Cornwall and Devon, who died A.D. 576 (see March 11), and he is said to have been descended from Julius Caesar. And S. Germain of Auxerre (d. 448) is made contemporary with S. Turiau (fr), B. of Dol, in the 8th cent., and is sent from Ireland by S. Patrick (d. 465) to Britain. But the Acts, it is very evident, are made out of popular Breton ballads. In one place the writer translates into metre the reply of Moneduc to her daughter.]"[31]
    "The legend of S. Nennocha is pure fable, through which one can scarce discern the outlines of history. According to the legend there was a king in Wales named Breochan, who with his wife Moneduc had fourteen sons, who all deserted him that they might preach the Gospel. Breochan then promised he would yield tithe of all his gold and lands if God would give him another child. In course of time Moneduc brought forth a little girl, who was baptized by the name of Nennocha-Guengustl, and was then given to be fostered by Gurhentil, a kinsman of the king, and his wife Guenargant. At the age fourteen Nenocha returned to her father's house, and was sought in marriage by a prince of Ireland. But S. Germain being then at her father's palace, he persuaded her to embrace the religious life. Breochan sadly gave his consent. Then, the news having spread abroad, a great multitude assembled to accompany S. Nennocha in her renunciation of the world. Among these were four bishops, a crowd of priests and virgins. They all took ship together and sailed to Brittany, and landed at Pullilfyn. The king of the country gave S. Nennocha land at Ploërmel, and there she founded a great monastery where she resided till her death."[31]
  14. ^ [Anciently venerated on this day in the diocese of Exeter. Authority: — The Ancient Exeter Martyrology of B. Grandison, quoted by Leland.]
    This saint is said, but it is more than questionable, to have been a disciple of S. Patrick. She came to Cornwall from Ireland, and lived a solitary life on the east bank of the river Hayle."[33]
  15. ^ Born in Wales, he studied in Ireland and settled in Cornwall, where he was very active. He founded a monastery at a place called after him, Petrocstow (Padstow), and another at Bodmin where he reposed.
  16. ^ St Buryan is named after her.

  18. ^ They are also commemorated on the Synaxis of the Saints of Novgorod, on the fourth Sunday after Pentecost.
