  11. ^ "In the Scottish Menology of Thomas Dempster, there is an entry of St. Hildulph, Bishop of Treves, and of his companions, as named, at the 23rd of June. The Bollandists also notice this commemoration, but defer giving his Acts to the 11th of July. We are told by Surius, that when Dagobert ruled over the kingdom of the Franks, St. Florentius with the Blessed Argobast, Theodatus, and Hildulph came from Scotia to Alsace. Thomas Dempster has some other notices in his Scottish History."[22]

  15. ^ On June 23, 1821, a Holy Synod took place at the Metropolis of Crete, at the Agios Minas Cathedral, at which the Archbishop of Crete started to read a letter sent by the Ottoman Vizier. Enemies who were lying in wait seized upon the church and murdered the Bishops, 17 priests and 5 hagiorite fathers from the Vatopedi monastery. They also murdered 300 Christians who were in attendance. From there, they persecuted the remaining Christians who were dispersed in the city, mercilessly killing any they found in the streets, where they also met Bishop Hierotheos of Lambis, who they murdered together with his deacon. On the next day, in the village "Epano Phourni", which was the seat of the Bishop of Petra, Bishop Ioakeim was shot outside the Church of the Theotokos.[29]
