NotesEdit

  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. ^ "In Egypt, St. Jeremias, prophet, who was stoned to death by the people at Taphnas, where he was interred. St. Epiphanius relates that the faithful were wont to pray at his grave, and to take away from it dust to heal those who were stung by serpents."[3]
  3. ^ His feast day in the West is given as June 1st according to the Roman Martyrology:
    "At Treves, St. Simeon, monk, who was added to the number of the Saints by Pope Benedict IX."[13]
  4. ^ "In France, in the province of Vivarais, blessed Andeol, subdeacon, who was sent from the East into Gaul with others by St. Polycarp to preach the word of God. Under the emperor Severus he was scourged with thorny sticks, and having his head split with a wooden sword into four parts, in the shape of a cross, terminated his martyrdom."[3]
  5. ^ See also: Grata di Bergamo. Italian Wikipedia.
  6. ^ "At Sion, in Switzerland, St. Sigismund, king of the Burgundians, who was drowned in a well, and afterwards became renowned for miracles."[3]
  7. ^ St Macarius’s relics were formerly enshrined in St Sophia’s Cathedral. His martyrdom is notable because he was serving the Divine Liturgy when the Tatars attacked his Church. He refused to leave the Altar and was martyred in front of it. The Euchologion of St Peter Mohyla affirms that if a priest or bishop is serving the Divine Liturgy and the place where he is serving it is attacked by enemies, he may try to escape or else remain where he is. Should he be killed in so doing, he would be placed in the calendar as a Martyr.[23]
  8. ^ Also commemorated on October 8, the Synaxis of the Saints of Vyatka.[40]
