  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. ^ None of the Synaxaria list him as a Saint. His memory is preserved only in the 'Jerusalemitic Canonarion' (p. 105; Edition of Archimandrite Kallistos). Perhaps the Church of Jerusalem had a specific reason for ranking him among the Saints.
  3. ^ He is not listed in the Synaxaria. He was "newly-revealed", when his icon was discovered accidentally in the 14th century in Rhodes, during exacavations on the southern section of the old city wall. There, an ancient church was discovered with many destroyed icons, among which was the well preserved icon of St. Phanourios (Greek: «ὁ ἅγιος Φανῶ»). This took place during the tenure of the Metropolitan of Rhodes "Neilos II Diassorianos" (1355-1369). The saint was depicted as young soldier holding a cross in his right hand, and a lighted taper, with twelve scenes from his life shown around the border of the icon.
  4. ^ Name days celebrated today include:
    • Fanourios (Φανούριος);
    • Fanouria (Φανουρία).
  5. ^ "The same day, the martyrdom of St. Anthusa the Younger, who was made a martyr by being cast into a well for the faith of Christ."[11]
  6. ^ "At Lentini, in Sicily, St. Euthalia, virgin. Because she was a Christian she was put to the sword by her brother Sermilian, and went to her spouse."[11]
  7. ^ Rufus was a Deacon.
  8. ^ "At Capua, in Campania, the birthday of St. Rufus, bishop and martyr, a patrician, who was baptized with all his family by blessed Apollinaris, disciple of St. Peter."[11]
  9. ^ "At Bergamo, St. Narnus, who was baptized by blessed Barnabas, and consecrated by him first bishop of that city."[11]
  10. ^ Born in Carthage in North Africa of Christian parents, she married a pagan and had three children. Through her patience and gentleness she converted her husband and through her prayers and tears her wayward son, who became Blessed Augustine. She reposed in Ostia near Rome and her relics are preserved in Rome.
  11. ^ Born in Châlon-sur-Saône in France, he became a monk at Lérins when young and then Bishop of Arles. He presided several Councils and founded a convent afterwards called after him at Arles, where his sister St Caesaria became abbess. He was zealous for decorum in liturgy and excelled as a preacher. His homilies still exist. During the distress caused by the siege of Arles in 508, he sold the treasures of his church to help the poor.
  12. ^ Born in Spain, probably in Lérida (Ilerda), he went to France and in 506 became Bishop of Couserans.
  13. ^ "DECUMAN, who is also called DECOMBE and DAGAN, belonged to a noble family in Wales; but desirous of a solitary life, forsook his home and crossed the Severn on a hurdle of reeds. He landed on the coast of Somerset, and finding a spot near Dunster which promised to satisfy his longings, established himself there. The place still bears his name, and is attached to a prebendal stall in the Cathedral of Wells, also called St. Decumans. The Saint is venerated as a Martyr, having been put to death by a murderer, in hatred of religion."[19]
  14. ^ Born in Wales, he lived as a hermit at what is now St Decumans in Somerset in England, where he was martyred.
  15. ^ Born in Tonnerre, he was a monk at Saint-Pierre-le-Vif in Sens in France. He became Bishop of Sens which he saved in 725 when it was besieged by the Saracens.
  16. ^ He was invited to restore monastic discipline at Sithin (Saint Bertin).
  17. ^ Bishop of Constance in Germany (979-995). In 983 he founded the monastery of Petershausen near Constance where he was buried.
