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. ^ In the Orthodox Church his feast day is observed on March 13. According to an epistle of Saint Dionysius, Bishop of Corinth, Saint Publius lived in the 2nd century and came from the city of Athens. He became bishop there as the successor of Saint Narcissus of Athens, thus dating his martyrdom to the period of the persecution under Marcus Aurelius (161-180).[2]
    However, in the West (Roman Catholic Church), his feast day is celebrated instead on January 21, and he is placed as the successor of St. Dionysius the Areopagite (Denis the Areopagite), dating his martyrdom to c. 112 AD:
    "At Athens, the birthday of St. Publius, bishop, who, as successor of St. Denis the Areopagite, nobly governed the Church of Athens. No less celebrated for the lustre of his virtues than for the brilliancy of his learning, he was gloriously crowned for having borne testimony to Christ."[3]
  3. ^ The Holy Martyrs Africanus, Publius and Terence suffered in the 3rd century at Petrium. Their memory is celebrated also on April 10.[15]
  4. ^ A monk at the monastery of St Claudio in Leon in Spain. Two days after the abbot, St Vincent, was martyred, Ramirus and all the other monks were martyred by the Arian Visigoths while they sang the Creed.
  5. ^ Born in Munster in Ireland, he was the nephew of St Ita. He became a monk at Bangor in Co. Down under St Comgall and later founded Liath-Mochoemoc.
  6. ^ Born in Camerino in Italy, after living as a hermit at Castel Raimondo near Torcello, he became bishop of his native town. He accepted the office on condition that his see should be exempt from the service of recruiting soldiers, then imposed on most bishops.
  7. ^ Roderick was a priest in Cabra near Cordoba in Spain who was betrayed by his Muslim brother and imprisoned there. In prison he met his fellow-martyr, Salomon. They were both martyred in Cordoba.
