Other Commemorations


  1. ^ According to the "Dictionary of Christian Biography" (1877), which matches the account in the "Great Synaxaristes" very closely, Hieromartyr Cyriacus of Jerusalem was:
    "Commemorated in the Menologium of Basil II as a man of Jerusalem, who discovered the true cross, and showed it to Helena, and was thereby converted, and became Patriarch of Jerusalem; and was martyred along with his mother by Julian the Apostate, his right hand being first cut off because his writings had made so many converts. He is unknown to history."[2]
    Note, Cyriarus of Jerusalem is not to be confused with either:


  1. ^ Ὁ Ἅγιος Κυριάκος ὁ Ἱερομάρτυρας. 18 Οκτωβρίου. ΜΕΓΑΣ ΣΥΝΑΞΑΡΙΣΤΗΣ.
