Notes

  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. ^ "On the Leavetaking of the Feast of the Annunciation, the Church commemorates the Archangel Gabriel, who announced the great mystery of the Incarnation of Christ to the Virgin Mary. There is no period of Afterfeast due to Great Lent."[5]
  3. ^ "Also, the holy martyrs Quadratus, Theodosius, Emmanuel, and forty others."[8]
  4. ^ "At Pentapolis, in Libya, the birthday of the holy martyrs Theodore, bishop, Irenaeus, deacon, Serapion and Ammonius, lectors."[8]
  5. ^ "At Alexandria, the holy martyrs Eutychius and others, who died by the sword for the Catholic faith, in the time of [8]
  6. ^ "Another record of the same persecution is contained in the Greek Calendar, which celebrates, on March 26th, the martyrdom of six-and-twenty Goths, of whom two, Bathusis and Verekas, were presbyters, and the rest were of the laity, both men and women. These suffered, according to this record, in the reign of Valentinian and Valens, through the cruelty of the Gothic king, Jungerich (Athanaric), by whom they were burnt together in a church. Then follows a long account of the removal of the relics by a pious queen, who, with her daughter, brought them to Cyzicum. The memory of the same event is also preserved in the fragments of a Gothic calendar, which were discovered in the library at Milan early in this century. One of the seven festivals therein noted is on the 29th of the month preceding November, which is marked as "Remembrance of the martyrs among the Goth-folk who were burnt with Vereka, a presbyter ('papa'), and with Batvin, the servant of the Catholic Church.""[19]
  7. ^ (Greek) Οἱ Ἅγιοι Εἴκοσι Ἕξι Μάρτυρες οἱ ἐν Γοτθίᾳ μαρτυρήσαντες. Τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν Ἁγίων Μαρτύρων εἶναι:
    • Βαθούσης ἢ Ἀαθούσης πρεσβύτερος μετὰ τῶν δύο υἱῶν καὶ τριῶν θυγατέρων αὐτοῦ,
    • μοναχὸς Ἀρπύλας,
    • Ἀβίππας, Ἁγνάς, Ἡγάθραξ, Ἡσκόος, Θέρμας ἢ Θέρθας, Ρύαξ ἢ Ρύϊας, Σεΐμβλας ἢ Σουΐμβλας, Σιγήτζας ἢ Σίδητζας, Σίλας, Σουηρίλας, Φίλγας
    • καὶ οἱ γυναῖκες: Ἀλλάς, Ἀνιμαΐς, Ἄννα, Βάρις ἢ Βάρκα, Λαρίσσα, Μαμύκα, Μωϊκὼ καὶ Οὐϊρκώ.[16]
  8. ^ "AT Rome, on the Lavican road, St. Castulus, martyr, chamberlain in the palace of the emperor. For harboring the Christians, he was three times suspended by the hands, three times cited before the tribunals, and as he persevered in the confession of the Lord, he was thrown into a pit, overwhelmed with a mass of sand, and thus obtained the crown of martyrdom."[8]
  9. ^ "In the same city, the crowning of the holy martyrs Peter, Marcian, Jovinus, Thecla, Cassian, and others."[8]
  10. ^ A monk at the monastery of St Engratia in Saragossa in Spain, he was ordained priest by his own brother, John, whom he succeeded as Archbishop of Saragossa.
  11. ^ Born in Frisia, he returned to his homeland from England, but mainly preached in Westphalia of which he is the Apostle. His gentleness did more to attract the Saxons to Christ than all the brutal armies of Charlemagne. He lived for a time at Montecassino in Italy. He was the first Bishop of Münster in Germany.
