  2. ^ "The Holy Prophet Ahijah, (cf. 1/3 Kgs 11:29 ff.) was a contemporary of Solomon, and was born in the city of Shiloh. The prophet predicted to Jeroboam his kingly rule over the ten Tribes of Israel, which God would grant him, snatching them away from the hands of Solomon. Afterwards Ahijah predicted to Jeroboam the perishing of all his line. All the predictions of the prophet were fulfilled. The Prophet Ahijah died in old age 960 years before the birth of Christ."[4]
  3. ^ The martyrs Anthony, Zevinus, Germanus and Nicephorus were beheaded in Caesarea, while Virgin-martyr Maratho was burned alive in Scythopolis in Syria Palaestina.[6]
  4. ^ "At Constantinople, St. Nilus, abbot who resigned the office of governor of the city to become a monk, and was distinguished for learning and sanctity, in the time of Theodosius the Younger."[10]
  5. ^ A poor shepherd in La Rioja in Spain, he became a hermit and was later ordained priest for the parish of Berceo. The saint, however, returned to his life as a hermit. A large number of disciples gathered around him and he became their abbot. This gave rise to the monastery of La Cogolla. In Spain he is known as San Millan de la Cogolla.
  6. ^ "At Tarazona, in Spain, blessed Æmilian, a priest who wrought numberless miracles, and whose wonderful life was written by St. Braulio, bishop of Saragossa."[10]
  7. ^ Born in Ireland, he was baptised by St Colman and became a disciple of St Columba at Iona in Scotland. Later he went with twelve disciples to convert the Picts near Aberdeen.
  8. ^ "ST. CADWALADOR, called the last King of Britain, of the ancient British race, was the son of the ferocious Cadwallon, who fell in the Battle of Heavenfield, in an encounter with St. Oswald. Cadwalador was venerated as a Saint in Wales, and is named in the calendars of that country. Of his Acts we know little or nothing; but it appears that either he died of the plague in Wales, or, flying from the terrible epidemic, died in Brittany. (The story of his abdicating and going to Rome and dying there, appears to arise from a confusion between Cadwalador and Ceadwalla, King of Wessex)."[15]
  9. ^ A monk at Ripon in England, he went to Holland and took part in the work begun by St Boniface. He worked with St Marcellinus under St Gregory of Utrecht and founded a church in Deventer. From there he preached to the Saxons and the Frisians.
  10. ^ "In Poland, the holy martyrs Benedict, John, Matthew, Isaac and Christinus, hermits."[10]
  11. ^ "Fr. Alexander Adrianov was a zealous priest of the Ekaterinburg Diocese whose whole life was consumed by service to his flock and love for others. In the autumn of 1918, Fr. Alexander was the sole priest remaining in his area, as several others fled following the Bolsheviks’ killing of several clergy. He continued zealously serving and preaching. Fr. Alexander was arrested in the night of November 8/21 during a Divine service and was shot soon thereafter on November 12/25. According to one eyewitness, Fr. Alexander died with a prayer on his lips. His body was found five days later, lightly covered with snow, with his arms crossed over his chest."[23]
