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. ^ They may be the same commemorated in December 19. (Elias + Ares = Hilary?)
  3. ^ Certain Synaxaria mistakenly refer to him as the Bishop of Jerusalem.
  4. ^ Greek use: at Jerusalem.
  5. ^ "When the Persian King Chosroes II was advancing on Jerusalem in 614, Patriarch Zacharias sent Modestus through the enemy lines to ask help of the imperial forces stationed at Antioch. The Holy City fell to the Persians after a three-week siege and, for three days, was thoroughly pillaged and was the scene of dreadful massacres. As the holy Patriarch Zacharias (21 Feb.), along with the Holy Cross and thousands of Christians, had been deported to Persia, Modestus was chosen to succeed him in the still smouldering city. Braving death at every moment, the Saint, like a second Zerubbabel, saw to the burying of the tens of thousands of victims and to the cleansing of the devastated and profaned sanctuaries and holy places. He brought together, consoled and gave hope to the survivors, and thanks to unstinted aid from Saint John the Merciful, the Patriarch of Alexandria (12 Nov.), he was able to restore life to the afflicted Church of Sion, bereft of all resource."[8]
  6. ^ His memory is recorded in the Synaxarion of Delahaye, pp.361, 53, together with that of St. Memnon, Archbishop of Ephesus.
  7. ^ "At Ravenna, the holy martyrs Valentine, military officer, Concordius, his son, Navalis, and Agricola, who suffered for Christ in the persecution of Maximian."[16]
  8. ^ "In Africa, many holy virgins, who reached a happy termination of their martyrdom in the persecution of the Vandals, under the Arian king Hunneric, by having heavy weights tied to them, and burning plates of metal applied to their bodies."[16]
  9. ^ Born in Burgundy in France, he became a monk at Prüm near Trier in Germany. From here he travelled to Rome. On his return he became Bishop of Vienne and was an excellent bishop. He is remembered for the martyrology which bears his name.
  10. ^ She was rescued from brutality after his death by Otto the Great who married her. Widowed again, she was maltreated by her son and daughter-in-law. In old age she became the regent of the Empire. At the end of her life she became a nun.
