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 year 781 AD his relics were translated to Amasya by Bishop Theofylaktos of Amasea, who placed the sacred relics on the right side of the altar.
  3. ^ By tradition he was a disciple of St Barnabas and the first Bishop of Tortona in Piedmont in Italy, where he was martyred under Hadrian after an episcopate of forty-five years.
  4. ^ Born in Malaga in Spain, he became Bishop there. He later fled to Auvergne in France.
  5. ^ Born in Ireland, he became a monk at Luxeuil in France. Later he founded the monastery of Sackingen and is venerated as the Apostle of the Upper Rhine in Germany.
  6. ^ Cyneburgh, Cyneswith and Tibba. Cyneburgh and Cyneswith were daughters of Penda of Mercia in England, who was notorious for his opposition to Orthodoxy. The former founded a convent in Castor in Northamptonshire and was followed as abbess by her sister. Tibba was a relative who joined them at the convent. Their relics were enshrined together.
  7. ^ He introduced the Roman Liturgy and singing into his diocese and the north of Europe in general.
  8. ^ He is listed on February 19th in Stanton:
    "BlLFRlD, before he quitted the world to embrace the life of an anchorite, had exercised the craft of a goldsmith. No particulars have reached us of his virtues and acts as a solitary, nor do we know the place of his retreat ; but he was venerated as a Saint during his life and after his death. By command of St. Ethelwold, he employed his skill in nobly adorning the Gospels of St. Cuthbert with gold and precious stones. Moreover, when this much-prized volume accidentally fell into the sea, at the time of the translation of Cuthbert's relics, it was attributed to the intercession of St. Bilfrid, as well as other Saints, that the sacred treasure was miraculously recovered. The relics of St. Bilfrid, with those of other Saints, were translated to Durham, in obedience to the vision of the priest Elfred."[19]
  9. ^ Born in Scotland, he lived in Armagh in Ireland. He went to France and lived as a monk at Fleury. He then became Abbot of Waulsort on the Meuse in Belgium and finally lived in Metz.
  10. ^ "The famous Black Madonna was originally a gift from Byzantium to the royal court of Kyiv and was later taken by the Polish prince Vladislav Opolskie from Belz to Częstochowa, but miraculous copies abound in Kyiv and many other places in Ukraine (e.g. Turkovetske and Hoshiv). In the 15th century, St Theodore Ostrozhky – then a soldier fighting the Poles – was in Czestochowa during peace negotiations when he saw the Black Madonna at her shrine. Considering it an icon of Kyivan Rus’ that was stolen by the Poles, he tried to remove the icon to take it back to Ukraine with him. He was arrested on charges of “blasphemy” and during his trial told the Polish court that this icon was originally “of Rus’” and that he intended to bring it home to Ukraine where it belonged. He later became a monk and saint of the Kyiv Caves Lavra."[27]
  11. ^ In the year 1887, in honour of the wonderworking icon, in the village of Sheltomezha was founded the Shestokhovsk Ascension women's monastery.
