  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. ^ The Unmercenary Saints Cosmas and Damian of Asia Minor should not be confused with the Unmercenary Saints Cosmas and Damian of Rome (July 1), or the Unmercenary Saints Cosmas and Damian of Arabia (October 17).[2]
  3. ^ "At Damascus, the martyrdom of the Saints Caesarius, Dacius and five others."[6]
  4. ^ Mentioned in Parisian Codex 259, sheet 2a.
  5. ^ "At Tarsus, the Saints Cyrenia and Juliana, under the emperor Maximian."[6]
  6. ^ "At Dijon, St. Benignus, a priest, who was sent to France by blessed Polycarp to preach the Gospel. After he had been subjected to many most grievous torments, by the judge Terentius, under the emperor Marcus Aurelius, he was finally condemned to have his neck struck with an iron bar and his body pierced with a lance."[6]
  7. ^ "The same day, St. Mary, handmaid. Accused of professing the Christian religion, in the time of the emperor Adrian, she was subjected to cruel scourging, to torture on the rack, and the lacerating of her body with iron hooks, and thus completed her martyrdom."[6]
  8. ^ "At Terracina, in Campania, the birthday of St. Caesarius, deacon, who was for many days detained in prison, afterwards put into a sack with St. Julian, priest, and then precipitated into the sea."[6]

  10. ^ His relics are in the church of St Laurence in Tivoli.

  13. ^ A close disciple of Elder Naz-arius and his beloved cell-attendant during Naz-arius' stay as a recluse in the wilderness of Valaam, Fr. Hilarion accompanied him also to Sarov Monastery, where he was to defend St. Seraphim's orphans to such an extent that he was even banished for several years from Sarov. St. Seraphim had all the nuns of his Diveyevo Convent tonsured only by Fr. Hilarion, who was also to lay the beginning of St. Seraphim's glorification, finding his own final resting place near those of St. Seraphim and his beloved Abbot Nazarius. Elder Hilarion was a writer and left a brief "Ladder of Divine Ascent" which was published together with the Counsels of Abbot Nazarius. Since the latter did not know how to write, Fr. Hilarion took down Nazarius' teachings. The engraving on the left is taken from the Sarov Patericon which, although regrettably brief, nevertheless shows clearly that the Paisian influence upon Russia did not fall on barren ground. There were deep spiritual currents that consciously preserved me national holiness of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk and the Elders of the Roslavl and Sarov forests and welcomed the Athonite spirit which came from Moldavia.[23]
