  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. ^ For 70 years he practiced asceticism as a hermit on a mountain near the city of Antinous, Egypt and died in peace.[14]
  3. ^ His shrine is in Toulouse.
  4. ^ An exceedingly large number of martyrs put to death in Saragossa under Diocletian by the savage prefect Dacian, who had been sent to Spain to enforce the decrees. He published an edict exiling all Orthodox from the city, and while they were leaving he ordered the soldiers to fall upon and massacre them. Eighteen of them are honoured separately on April 16.
  5. ^ "At Viterbo, during the persecution of Maximian, the holy martyrs Valentine, priest, and Hilary, deacon. For attachment to the faith of Christ, they were cast into the Tiber with a stone tied to them, but being miraculously rescued by an angel, they were beheaded, and thus were crowned with the glory of martyrdom."[19]
  6. ^ The town where his relics are enshrined is named after him. See: (French) Flour (évêque). Wikipédia. (French Wikipedia).
  7. ^ A chapel was built in her honour over her house on the Coelian Hill in Rome.
  8. ^ Born in Wales, he was a hermit in Herefordshire, now in England. The village of Clodock is named after him.
  9. ^ Born in Wales and a niece of St Beuno, she was beheaded by a prince for refusing his advances. A spring of water gushed forth where her head had fallen. This was the origin of her holy well which has been a centre of pilgrimage ever since.
  10. ^ Successor of St Desiderius the Martyr as Bishop of Vienne in France. He was zealous in ransoming captives.
  11. ^ A three-day-old infant and prince, who professed the Faith immediately after baptism and then died.
  12. ^ "ST. VULGANIUS is stated in some ancient records to have been a native of Great Britain, but it is more probable that he was in reality an Irishman. He went over to the Continent, and led a solitary life in Artois. The cell in which he lived and died is not far from the Abbey of St. Vedast, in Arras. He preached the Faith to the people, and by some authors is called a Bishop. The Collegiate Church of Lens is dedicated to him, and he is regarded as the Patron of that place. His festival was observed at Canterbury, as may be supposed, on account of some conspicuous relic possessed by that church."[20]
  13. ^ A widowed courtier who devoted his life to the Faith. By tradition he was converted while hunting. He probably became a monk at Stavelot in Belgium. Eventually he succeeded St Lambert as Bishop of Maastricht in the Netherlands (c 706).
  14. ^ Born in Spain of Visigothic descent. When the Saracens invaded Spain, he fled and went to the Rhineland in Germany, where he established several monasteries - Reichenau in 724, Murbach, Amorbach - and restored others, notably Dissentis. He also became a bishop.
  15. ^ He built the Cathedral there.
