  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. ^ See: (Greek) Ιερά Μητρόπολις Θεσσαλονίκης. Βικιπαίδεια. (Greek Wikipedia).
  3. ^ "At Ancyra, St. Philomenus, martyr. During the persecution of the emperor Aurelian, under the governor Felix, he was first exposed to the flames, then having his hands, feet and head pierced with nails, consummated his martyrdom."[9]
  4. ^ Name days celebrated today include:
    • Phaedra (Φαίδρα).
  5. ^ This is likely the same individual as the one celebrated on November 1 and April 10.
  6. ^ It is unknown when and where they were martyred. However according to the tradition, when they were being persecuted, a stone opened up and they entered inside it.
  7. ^ In 301, Tiridates proclaimed Christianity as the state religion of Armenia, making the Armenian kingdom the first state to embrace Christianity officially.[16]
  8. ^ Possibly the same individual as Saint Romanus, Bishop of Macedonia, who is commemorated a day earlier on November 28.
  9. ^ His memory is preserved in the Synaxarion of Delehaye. He left behind a wife, children and relatives to become a monk. He wandered the desert, cities and villages, and came to Egypt, where he was found dead in a temple, carrrying heavy irons upon him. When the people saw this they were amazed at his asceticism. Thus they constructed a wooden coffin where they placed his body along with the heavy irons that he wore in life.
  10. ^ A missionary who enlightened the area around Pampeluna (Pamplona) in Navarre in Spain and then the area and city of Toulouse in France. He is venerated as the first Bishop of Toulouse. By tradition he was martyred in the persecution of Valerian by being fastened to a wild bull which dragged him about until he was torn to pieces.
  11. ^ "At Toulouse, in the time of Decius, the holy bishop Saturninus, who was confined by the Pagans in the capitol of that city, and from the highest part of the building precipitated down the stairs; by which fall, having his head crushed, his brains dashed out and his whole body mangled, he rendered his worthy soul to our Lord."[9]
  12. ^ According to tradition Saturninus was a priest in Rome, though born in Carthage. He and his deacon Sisinius were sentenced to hard labour and subsequently martyred. They were buried in the cemetery of St Thraso on the Salarian Way.
  13. ^ "At Rome, on the Salarian road, the birthday of the holy martyr Saturninus, an aged man, and the deacon Sisinius, in the time of the emperor Maximian. After a long imprisonment, they were, by order of the prefect of the city, placed on the rack, distended with ropes, scourged with rods and whips garnished with metal, then exposed to the flames, taken down from the rack and beheaded."[9]
  14. ^ A contemporary of St Brendan the Voyager and a disciple of St Finian at Clonard. His monastery of Birr was in Offaly in Ireland. He was a friend and advisor of St Columba, who saw the soul of St Brendan carried by angels to heaven at the moment of his repose.
  15. ^ A number of churches in Wales are dedicated to him.
  16. ^ "ST EGELWINE was a brother of Kenewalch, King of the West Saxons, but more illustrious for his eminent sanctity than for his royal birth. He was continually afflicted with sickness, but did not on that account relax his fervent resolution of serving God in Christian perfection. The holy man persevered in this course till his blessed death, and after that by his miracles and availing intercession continued to show himself the watchful protector of those who had recourse to him. The Abbey of Athelney was not erected until a later period; but it was there that the memory of St. Egelwine was held in especial veneration."[28]
  17. ^ Canonized in 2015. See also: (Russian) Мардарий (Ускокович). Википедии. (Russian Wikipedia).
  18. ^ He was martyred on November 29, 1979, the same feast day as his patron Saint, Philoumenus of Ancyra (274). He was canonized on September 11, 2009 by the Patriarchate of Jerusalem,[36] with this canonization being reaffirmed on March 5, 2010 by the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Russia as well:[37]
    (Russian): 5 марта 2010 года Священный синод Русской православной церкви постановил:
    «включить имя священномученика Филумена (Хасаписа) в месяцеслов Русской Православной Церкви с установлением празднования его памяти 16/29 ноября, как это установлено в Иерусалимской Церкви».[37]
    Both Patriarchates placed his feast day on November 16 (ns) / 29 (os). However churches on the New Calendar place his feast day directly on November 29 (ns).
