An English Orthodox Calendar

 An English Orthodox Calendar

Compiled and written by Vladimir Moss

 

This is a list of suggested additions to the Calendar of the Orthodox Church from among the Saints of Western, especially English, origin who reposed before the West fell away from Orthodoxy. It is based extensively on pre-Schism calendars – mainly Anglo-Saxon calendars from the tenth and eleventh centuries, but also the Hieronymian Martyrology and certain other Western Orthodox calendars – and reflects the bias of these calendars towards English, French, and Roman Saints; but the main Saints of other Western countries also included. With some exceptions, the commemorations of Saints who are already widely venerated in the Eastern Orthodox Church are not included.

Listed in small capitals are those Saints who enjoyed universal veneration throughout Britain. Also included in angular brackets are several men and women for whose righteousness before God there is strong evidence, but for whom there is only little or no record of veneration in pre-Conquest times, together with those who died resisting the authority of the false pope and king during and after the Conquest. In particular, these latter include the last two Orthodox kings of England, Edward the Confessor and Harold II, and the last Orthodox English Hierarch, Ethelric. The letters [F] and [S] are attached to Saints of the first and second rank, respectively, in the calendar known as the Bosworth Psalter, which was compiled at Canterbury after 988 and before 1023.

 

All dates are for the ecclesiastical (Old, Orthodox, or Julian) calendar, which is thirteen days behind the secular (New, Papal, or Gregorian) calendar. Thus, for example, 1st September, Old Style, is 14th September, New Style. Where pre-Conquest dates of commemoration differ from post-conquest dates, the pre-Conquest are preferred, and where English dates are preferred. Thus, for example, the Prince-Martyr Wistan is listed under 1st January, not 1st June, and the Venerable Bede under 26th May, not 27th May. However, where ancient English dates of commemoration differ from contemporary Orthodox dates, the contemporary Orthodox dates are preferred, while the ancient English dates, for historical interest, are given in brackets. Thus, for example, Saint Ambrose of Milan is listed under 7th December, while his commemoration on 4th April is noted in brackets. Finally, those Saints for whom a specific date of commemoration is unknown or uncertain are listed together under the Sunday of All Saints.
