  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. ^ Martyrs Anastasia and Cyril, early martyrs in Rome (c. 253). The former was bound with chains in Valerian's persecution under the Prefect Probus, tortured, her breasts cut off, her nails torn out, her teeth broken, her hands and feet cut off, and being beheaded, she passed to her Bridegroom; Cyril, who offered her water when she begged for it, received martydom as his reward.[4]
  3. ^ Martyrs Menas and Menaeus are also commemorated on August 1.
  4. ^ Her memory is preserved in the synaxarion of Sirmond as follows:
    • (in Greek) «Τῇ αὕτῃ ἡμέρα μνήμη τῶν Ἁγίων Ἀποστόλων καὶ Μαρτύρων Πέτρου, Παύλου, Ἰωάννου τοῦ Προδρόμου καὶ Βαπτιστοῦ, Στεφάνου τοῦ Πρωτομάρτυρος, Βαρνάβα τοῦ Ἀποστόλου, Ἰωσὴφ τοῦ Πατριάρχου, καὶ Κλεώπα, Τροφίμου, Δορυμέδοντος, Κοσμᾶ, Δαμιανοῦ, Βάσσης καὶ τῆς συνοδείας αὐτῶν. Τελεῖται δὲ ἡ αὐτῶν σύναξις ἐν τῷ σεπτῷ ἀποστολείῳ τοῦ Ἁγίου καὶ Πανευφήμου Ἀποστόλου Παύλου ἐν τῷ Ὀρφανοτροφείῳ ἅμα δὲ καὶ τὰ ἐγκαίνια τοῦ αὐτοῦ ναοῦ».
  5. ^ His memory is preserved in Parisian Codex 1589 (p. 91a), where he is described as a student of our holy father Trifyllios, Bishop of Lefkosia.
  6. ^ "[Scottish Martyrologies. Aberdeen Breviary.]"
    • "S. Kennera is the same as Cineria, one of the virgins of Colosse, who, it is pretended, accompanied S. Regulus, and were buried in S. Andrew's. The Aberdeen Breviary, however, is guilty of a blunder, in that she is confounded with S. Cunera (June 12), whose translation took place on October 28; and adopts the legend of Cunera and takes the lessons from it. Her church was Kirk-kinner in Galway. She was probably some recluse."[20]
  7. ^ He founded several monasteries and reposed as a hermit in the church of St Laurence in Vienne.
  8. ^ "[Gallican Martyrologies. Authority: — The Lessons in the Sens Breviary.]"
    • "The story of S. Baldus, called in France S. Bond, is a lingering reminiscence among the Franks of a myth akin to the Tannhäuser of German tradition. The story goes that he was a Spaniard, who had murdered by mistake his father and mother. Weighed down with horror at his crime, and finding no rest, he rambled to Jerusalem, and to Rome, and finally to Sens, where he confessed to the bishop, S. Artemius, all his sin, and asked if any hope of pardon could be given him. "Only when this dry staff I hold in my hand shall bear leaves and flowers," answered the bishop. "Go plant it and water it daily." Baldus did as he was bidden; and lo! after a while the dry staff put forth buds and blossomed, and he knew that he was forgiven."[22]
