    The notation New Style or (NS), indicates a date in the Revised Julian calendar (which is used by churches on the "New Calendar").
  2. ^ "At Laodicea, in the time of Diocletian, St. Artemon, a priest, who gained the crown of martyrdom by fire."[2]
  3. ^ "At Jerusalem, St. Pelagia, surnamed the Penitent."[2] She had been a type of courtesan known as a Hetaira.[1]
  4. ^ Name days celebrated today include:
    • Pelagia (Πελαγία).
  5. ^ Palatias was a lady of Ancona converted to Christ by her slave Laurentia. Both were martyred in Fermo near Ancona in Italy under Diocletian.
  6. ^ "At Ancona, Saints Palatias and Laurentia, who were sent into exile in the persecution of Diocletian, under the governor Dion, and sank under the weight of toil and misery."[2]
  7. ^ Born in Wales, she lived as an anchoress in Cornwall. Some say that Keynsham in Somerset was named after her. A church in Cornwall is dedicated to her.
  8. ^ "ST. KEYNA was one of the daughters of Brechan of Brecknock, who, like so many others of her holy family, forsook the world for a life of religious retirement. The place chosen for her seclusion was on the banks of the Avon, in Somerset, and is now called by her name, Keynsham. But after spending a length of time there she returned to Wales, where her admirable holiness gained universal veneration, and merited for her the distinguished appellation of the Virgin. It was in her own country that she gave up her soul to God, and there a number of ancient churches were dedicated in her honour."[14]
  9. ^ "At Rouen, St. Evodius, bishop and confessor."[2]
  10. ^ "In the diocese of Laon, St. Benedicta, virgin and martyr."[2]
  11. ^ "A virgin connected with St Regulus in Scotland. Her shrine was a centre of devotion and pilgrimage.
  12. ^ A monk at Lindisfarne in England, he was ordained deacon by St Cuthbert. His relics were later translated to Wilton near Salisbury.
  13. ^ "ST. YWY belonged to a British family, but whether he was a native of Great Britain or of Brittany is uncertain. His early years were devoted to piety and study, and when his parents, who were persons of position in the world, wished him to take up the profession of arms, to put an end to their ambitious views he, without their knowledge, received some of the inferior orders of the Church. When his father and mother were dead, he forsook all, and retired to Lindisfarne to become the disciple of St. Cuthbert. In due time he was ordained deacon by that great Saint, and, it is supposed, professed the monastic life. His sanctity, and the gift of miracles with which he was favoured; attracted the admiration of many, and the French account of his life says that in order to escape this he fled to Brittany, and there died a holy death. After a considerable length of time, his relics were translated, and found a resting-place in the Abbey of Wilton, where they were venerated with great devotion."[14]
