  2. ^ "In the island of Crete, blessed Pinytus, most noble among the bishops. He was bishop of Gnosia, and flourished under Marcus Antoninus Verus and Lucius Aurelius Commodus. He left in his writings, as in a mirror, a vivid delineation of himself."[4]
  3. ^ "EUSEBIUS speaks of Pinitus, Bishop of Gnossus, in Crete, who lived at the time of Dionysius of Corinth. Dionysius wrote to Pinitus, "not to impose on the brethren, without necessity, too severe a burden in regard to purity, but to pay regard to the infirmity of the great bulk of the people." To which Pinitus, writing in reply, said that he admired and applauded Dionysius, but exhorted him, at the same time, to impart some time or other food which was stronger to his flock, and to feed them with writings abounding in more perfect doctrine, so that they might not remain constantly imbibing the mere milk of doctrine, and grow old under a discipline calculated for children. "In this epistle also, the correct views which Pinitus cherished, and his solicitude for those committed to his care, also his learning and intelligence in divine matters, appear evidently.""[5]
  4. ^ "At Nicomedia, the holy martyrs Eulampius, and his sister, the virgin Eulampia, who, hearing that her brother was tortured for Christ, rushed through the crowd, embraced him and became his companion. Both were cast into a caldron of boiling oil, but being quite uninjured, they terminated their martyrdom by decapitation with two hundred others, who, impressed by the miracle, had believed in Christ."[4]
  5. ^ Name days celebrated today include:
    • Eulampios (Εὐλάμπιος);
    • Eulampia (Εὐλαμπία).
  6. ^ Cassius, Florentius and Companions. Martyrs under the Emperor Maximian Herculeus in Bonn in Germany.
  7. ^ "At Bonn, in Germany, the holy martyrs Cassius and Florentius, with many others."[4]
  8. ^ Gereon. A soldier martyred in Germany, either in Xanten or else in Bonn.
  9. ^ "At Cologne, in the persecution of Maximian, St. Gereon, martyr, with three hundred and eighteen others, who patiently bowed their necks to the sword for the true religion."[4]
  10. ^ Victor and Companions. A group of three hundred and thirty soldiers connected with the Theban Legion in Switzerland.
  11. ^ "In the neighborhood of the same city, the holy martyrs Victor and his companions."[4]
  12. ^ One of the bishops in North Africa driven from their sees by the Arian Vandals. He settled at Piombino in Tuscany in Italy and was a bishop there.
  13. ^ "At Piombino, in Tuscany, St. Cerbonius, bishop and confessor, who, as St. Gregory relates, was renowned for miracles, both during life and after death."[4]
  14. ^ Born in Rome, he was sent to England with Sts Mellitus and Justus (601) to help St Augustine. He spent twenty-four years in Kent and in 625 was consecrated Bishop of York and sent to enlighten Northumbria, where he baptised King Edwin in York. After the King's martyrdom, he returned to Kent, where he became Bishop of Rochester.
  15. ^ "At York, in England, the holy bishop Paulinus, disciple of the blessed pope Gregory. Being sent thither by that pope with others to preach the Gospel, he converted king Edwin and his people to the faith of Christ."[4]
  16. ^ Born in the Gâtinais in France, he became a monk at Ferrières. The Archbishop of Sens took him into his clergy and he became Archbishop himself in 828.
  17. ^ A pilgrim, perhaps from England, who stayed in Capua in Italy and was forced by the inhabitants to become their bishop. After an episcopate of eight years he reposed in Sicopolis where he had fled during the invasion of the Saracens.
  18. ^ Although he was withdrawn by the Ecumenical Patriarchate as Metropolitan of Larissa, Dionysios is revered as a saint by many Greeks, especially in Epirus. He is honored by them on October 10th, although he is not officially commemorated as a saint by the Church.[31]
