    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 Church continues to honor the passage of the Most Holy Theotokos from death to life. Just as Christ once dwelt in the virginal womb of His Mother, now He takes Her "to dwell in His courts."[2]
  3. Or and Oropsus were tortured together with the priest Irenaeus. The three thrown into the fire, but a heavy rain suddenly extinguished the fire and the three witnesses were untouched by the flames. The prefect then gave the decree to behead them.
  4. Her memory is preserved in the Synaxarion of Delahaye, as well as in Codex Oxon (Codex Biblioth. Bodleianae Oxon) t. III 16, and in Parisian Codex 1617.
  5. "At Rome, St. Antoninus, martyr, who, openly declaring himself a Christian, was condemned to capital punishment by the judge Vitellius, and buried on the Aurelian road."[13]
  6. A member of a senatorial family in Autun in France, he was martyred under Marcus Aurelius for refusing to sacrifice to a pagan goddess.
  7. "At Autun, St. Symphorian, a martyr, in the time of the emperor Aurelian. Refusing to offer sacrifice to the idols, he was first scourged, then confined in prison, and finally ended his martyrdom by being beheaded."[13]
  8. "At Porto, St. Hippolytus, bishop, most renowned for learning. Having gloriously confessed the faith, in the time of the emperor Alexander, he was bound hand and foot, precipitated into a deep ditch filled with water, and thus received the palm of martyrdom. His body was buried by the Christians at that place."[13]
  9. His relics were enshrined in a chapel near the church of St Paul-outside-the-Walls and venerated there.
  10. "At Rome, on the Ostian road, the birthday of the holy martyr Timothy. After he had been arrested by Tarquinius, prefect of the city, and kept for a long time in prison, as he refused to sacrifice to the idols, he was scourged three times, subjected to the most severe torments, and finally beheaded."[13]
  11. A monk and disciple of St Benedict Biscop, he became Abbot of Wearmouth in England in 686. He was an example of monastic virtue.
  12. Born in Ireland, he went to Rome as a pilgrim and settled in Fiesole in Italy and restored the monastery of San Martino in Mensula.
  13. "ST. ARNULPH is said to have been greatly venerated, and the place of his sepulture to have been the centre of many miracles, before the devastation of the district by the Danes. We have, however, but very scanty information about his life. He is generally supposed to have been of British origin, and to have led a solitary and very austere life, on the borders of Huntingdonshire and Bedfordshire. On the same day, the 22nd August, an ancient French calendar commemorates St. Arnulph, Bishop, which has induced some writers to conjecture that the Saint of Arnulphsbury, or Eynebury, is the same as the French prelate, whose relics may have been translated to England."[16]

  18. The Icon of Panagia Proussiotissa (Mother of God of Proussa) was re-discovered near Karpenissi in Greece, after it had been lost during its transportation in 829 AD from Asia Minor to the mainland of Greece to save it from iconoclasm, during the period of iconoclastic Byzantine Emperor Theophilos (829–842).[22][23] According to holy tradition, this icon was painted by Saint Luke the Evangelist. The Monastery of Proussos in Karpenisi, Evrytania, Greece, was named after the Holy Icon of Panagia of Prousa. It was founded during this period on the site where the icon was re-discovered. Its feast day is 23 August (the Leavetaking of the Dormition of the Mother of God), and it is visited by crowds of pilgrims each year from 15 to 23 August to venerate the Icon of the All-Holy Mother of God of Prousa.
