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. ^ According to the Synaxaristes, Abercius was martyred by being exposed naked to bees, and Helena by stoning.
  3. ^ According to the Synaxaristes, the holy martyr Julius was associated with Martyrs Pasicrates, Valentine, and Hesychius, who were martyred earlier (April 24).
  4. ^ In the early Byzantine period, Karpasia belonged ecclesiastically to the Bishopric of Salamis. However, by the end of the 4th century it was organized into an episcopal district which had its seat in the ancient city of Karpasia and having as its first bishop Saint Philon.[7] According to the Synaxaristes, St. Synesius was raised to the Episcopal throne by St. Philo (Philon) the Wonderworker of Karpasia, Cyprus (lived 4th to 5th centuries).
  5. ^ Commemorated on May 7 in the Greek Menaion.[9]
  6. ^ The Monk John Psychantes the Confessor lived during the end of the 8th and beginning of the 9th century. In his youth he left the secular world and accepted monasticism in the Psukhanteia Lavra (in the suburbs of Constantinople). For his holy life and salvific exploits, the monk received from God the gift to cast out demons and to heal the sick. During this time there raged the heresy of the iconoclasts, and those venerating holy icons were subjected to persecution. They led away the Monk John for interrogation, where they put him under coercion to renounce the veneration of holy icons and to sign a renunciation. The monk in place of a renunciation denounced the persecutors, calling the emperor Leo Isauros (717-741) an heretic. For this they sent the monk into exile, where he died, having endured much distress from the iconoclasts.[10]
  7. ^ A group of twenty-three martyrs in Rome, arrested while praying in the church of St. Praxedes and beheaded without trial.[13]
  8. ^ According to the Roman Martyrology: St. Eleutherius, Pope and Martyr, who converted to the Christian faith many noble Romans. He sent Saints Damian and Fugatius to England, and they baptized King Lucius, his wife, and almost all his people.[12] He was a Greek who became a deacon in Rome and succeeded St. Soterius as Pope in 175.[13]
  9. ^ According to the Synaxaristes, their holy relics were later discovered by Saint Germanus of Auxerre, who dedicated a church in honour of the Holy Martyrs.
  10. ^ In Africa, St. Quadratus, martyr, on whose feast day St. Augustine preached a sermon.[12]
  11. ^ Commemorated on May 25 in the Greek Menaion.[24]
  12. ^ Saint Bertilla was buried beside Saint Bathilda, in the abbatial church.
  13. ^ The Icon of the Mother of God of Seligersk-Vladimir was brought in the 16th century by the Monk Nil of Stolobensk (commemorated 7 December and 27 May) to the island of Seliger, where the saint pursued asceticism and founded a monastic hermitage (Nilov Monastery). The celebration for the Wonderworking Icon of the Mother of God is done also on 7 December.[28]
