  2. ^ "Also, St. Erotis, martyr, who, being inflamed with the love of Christ, triumphed over the violence of the flames."[9]
  3. ^ "At Treves, the commemoration of almost numberless martyrs, who were put to death for the faith in various manners, under the governor Rictiovarus, in the persecution of Diocletian."[9]
  4. ^ "At Agen, in France, the birthday of St. Faith, virgin and martyr, whose example encouraged blessed Caprasius so much that he happily terminated his combat by martyrdom".[9] Her shrine in Conques (Abbey Church of Saint Foy) is very famous.
  5. ^ "DACIANUS, governor of Spain under Diocletian and Maximian, was at one time at Agen, in Aquitania, and hearing that a certain noble damsel, named Faith, living in Agen, was a Christian, he summoned her before his tribunal and ordered her to renounce the faith of the Crucified. "From a child," answered the maiden, "I have served the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, and have confessed his name." Dacian produced the ordinary arguments, tried persuasion and threats in vain, and then sentenced her to be stretched over a fire on a brazen grate with her hands and feet tied to four posts. She endured the agony with great fortitude. The executioners raked up the coals under her and poured on fat, and the blaze rushing up enveloped her. According to one version of the Acts, a heavy fall of snow veiled her body as it lay on the burning bed, and the shower only ceased when she was dead. Many other Christians, moved by her heroism, surrendered themselves and were executed with the sword. The arm of S. Faith was anciently shown at Glastonbury. The crypt of S. Paul's Cathedral, London, is dedicated to S. Faith, and was at one time enriched with some of her relics. Her head is shown at Agen. In art S. Faith is represented as a maiden with a palmbranch and a grate."[11]
  6. ^ "At Auxerre, St. Romanus, bishop and martyr."[9]
  7. ^ "At Oderzo, St. Magnus, bishop, whose body rests at Venice."[9]
  8. ^ "ST. CEOLLACH was appointed to succeed St. Diuma as second Bishop of the Mercians and Mid-Angles. Like his predecessor, he was an Irishman, and a monk of St. Columba's Monastery of lona. He administered his diocese but a short time, and then returned to his beloved retreat at lona. The latter period of his life was spent in Ireland, where he is honoured among the native Saints of the country."[13]
  9. ^ At the time of the Saracen invasion he remained alone in the monastery which he saved through his prayers.
  10. ^ Venerable Cindeus (Kendeas) is one of the "300 Allemagne Saints" in Cyprus. The 300 Allemagne Saints came to Cyprus from Palestine, and lived as ascetics in various parts of the island. According to some of their lives in the Great Synaxaristes, after the dissolution of the Second Crusade (1147 - 1149), they decided to live the monastic life in the Jordan desert. However since the Latins there disturbed them, they relocated to Cyprus and dispersed over the island.[15][16]
