I have extensively revised this article, based on modern dictionaries of saints and especially on Christopher Walter's book (cited) on the Byzantine Warrior Saints. I have deleted the reference to Start Class in the hope that it may now be re-assessed.
The use of the place name Turkey is totally incorrect. Turkey was founded in 1922. The correct term for this geographic place is, A.S.i A. minor or Hellenic 'Mikra Asia'.
The name Turk is a Greek label given to the people that invaded Asia Minor, these people were most likely known previously as being related to the Uhgur people or other Mongol tribes.
The word Turk or 'Tur-tur' is actually related to the name Tartar which are both linguistic variations or translations for the Greek word for barbarian, Bar-bar-os. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 13:22, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
