Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, 

eerste Britse christelijke martelaar (+250)

Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, ook wel Albanus van Verulamium genoemd, was een 3e-eeuwse Engelse heilige. Hij was de eerste Britse christelijke martelaar. Zijn feestdag is 22 juni. De Engelse plaats St Albans is naar hem vernoemd.

De vroegst bekende bron over Albanus is de hagiografie over Germanus van Auxerre door Constantius van Lyon, geschreven rond 480. Gildas schreef over Albanus in zijn De Excidio Britanniae (6e eeuw).

Volgens de 8e-eeuwse Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum van Beda was Albanus een inwoner van de Brits-Romeinse stad Verulamium, nu St Albans, iets ten noorden van Londen. Albanus bekeerde zich tot het christendom en werd hiervoor onthoofd op een heuvel boven de stad. Volgens Beda vond deze executie ergens na het jaar 303 plaats. Nieuw onderzoek door de Britse historicus John Morris wees echter op het jaar 209, tijdens de vervolging van Continue reading “Heilige Albanus (Albaan) van Engeland, eerste Britse christelijke martelaar (+250) ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Dutch”

Beskrivelse

Udarbejdet af Munkepræsten Macarius af Simono-Petra-Klosteret. Oversat til Dansk af Munken Fotius (Ole Fr. Stjernfelt) af Paracletens Kloster. (2936 Sider)

Et synaxarium kan oversættes ved en helgenbeskrivelse; liv og i en række tilfælde mirakler. som tilskrives en person, der er blevet kanoniseret som en helgen.
I fire meget smukt indbundne bind er for hver af årets dage beskrivelser af helgener, som har relation til dagene. Hvert bind omfatter et kvartal.

Bind IV har et alfabetisk navneregister over de helgener, som er blevet grundigt bekrevet, og tillige er deres dag eller dage nævnt.

De enkelte bind kan transporteres uden at blive beskadiget, idet der er vedlagt et særligt skånebind, som passer til hver af værkets fire dele.

Det fornemme værk er forsynet med omfattende fodnoter til uddybning af og forklaring på forhold i teksten, der ikke kan formodes at være almen kendte. En mængde sort-hvide gengivelser af ikoner i relation til helgener og begivenheder medvirker til at værket er så smukt.

Endvidere er der også farvegengivelser af ikoner, der relaterer til årets største religiøse fester.

минуле і сьогодення час

Святий Албан († 22 червня, 209) — перший англійський мученик, язичницький солдат, який захистив християнського священика і ним же був навернений. Після того, як він виявив це римській владі, його бичували і обезголовили на місці, що згодом було йому присвячене як Абатство Святого Албана (монастир).

Церква вшановує його пам’ять 22 або 17 червня і його символом є олень.

San Patricio ng Irlanda (+461)

17 Marco

Si San Patricio ay isang Kristiyanong Romano Britanikong misyonero at pintakasing santo ng Irlanda na kahanay nina Brigid ng Kildare at Columba. Noong labing-anim na taong gulang siya, nabihag siya ng mga mananalakay na mga Irlandes at inalipin sa Irlanda, kung saan namuhay siya ng anim na taon bago makatakas at makabalik sa kaniyang mag-anak. Pumasok siya sa simbahan, katulad rin ng ginawa ng kaniyang ama at lolo, naging diyakuno at isang obispo. Nagbalik siya sa Irlanda bilang isang misyonero sa hilaga at kanluran ng pulo, subalit kaunti lamang ang nalalaman hinggil sa mga pook kung saan siya nagsagawa ng mga gawaing pangmisyonero, at walang ugnay na magawa sa pagitan ni Patricio at ng anumang simbahan. Sa pagsapit ng ika-8 daantaon, naging santong patron siya ng Irlanda. Sinilang at umunlad ang sistema ng monasteryong Irlandes pagkaraan ng panahon ni Patricio at hindi pinainam ng simbahang Irlandes ang huwarang dioyesis na sinubok ilunsad ni Patricio at iba pang mga sinaunang mga misyonero.

Bardsey Island, Wales

Saint Einion was a son of Owain Whitetooth (Ddantgwyn) and the brother of Cuneglas, king of Rhos, and of saints Seiriol and Meirion. Part of Gwynedd’s Cuneddan dynasty, he seems to have ruled as a local king over the Llŷn Peninsula southwest of Anglesey and possibly over Anglesey itself. He was credited with granting his brother Seiriol the land for his monastery at Penmon on Anglesey and, later, his hermitage on Puffin Island.[12] He also lured the Breton saint Cadfan from Tywyn to found St Mary’s Abbey, the first religious establishment on Bardsey Island. Although not part of the Cistercian Way, this became a major site of pilgrimage in Wales. Einion himself is sometimes said to have joined Cadfan’s community on the island, although his relics were claimed by the church at Llanengan.

Einion Frenin was credited with the establishment of the original church at Llanengan (St Einion’s).

Miraculous locations nearby include Ffynnon Engan (“Einion’s Well”) and Ol Troed March Engan (“The Hoofprint of Einion’s Horse”), a petrosomatoglyph near Castell Cinan whose collected rainwater was claimed to possess curative powers.

Saint Abban of Adamstown, Ireland (+520)

Saint Abbán moccu Corbmaic (d. 520), also Eibbán or Moabba, is an Irish Saint. He was associated, first and foremost, with Mag Arnaide (Moyarney or Adamstown, near New Ross, Co. Wexford) and with Cell Abbáin (Killabban, County Laois). Also, he connected to other churches elsewhere in Ireland, notably that of his sister Saint Gobnait.

His pedigree in the Irish genealogies, which appear to have been composed in the interest of Cell Abbáin, suggests that he belonged to the Uí Chormaic (also Moccu Chormaic or Dál Chormaic). It identifies his father as Laignech (lit. “Leinsterman”), son of Mac Cainnech, son of Cabraid, son of Cormac, son of Cú Corb, while an Irish note to the Félire Óengusso (for 27 October) largely agrees if substituting Cabraid for Imchad. The Lives, on the other hand, state that his Continue reading “Saint Abban of Adamstone, Ireland (+520)”

Saint Tassach (Tassac)

1st Bishop of Raholp, Ireland (+495)

January 14 & April 14

Saint Tassach, also known as St. Tassac was an Irish saint, born in the first decade of the 5th century, died c. 497.

He was one of Saint Patrick’s disciples, and when St Patrick founded the Church of Raholp he placed St Tassach in charge of it. The Church of Raholp was situated approximately 1 mile south of Saul.

St Tassach was a skilled artisan who made crosiers, patens, chalices, credences, shrines, and crosses for many of the churches founded by St Patrick, but is remembered primarily for the fact that he was selected by St Patrick to be with him in his last moments and to administer the Holy Viaticum to him.

This event is chronicled in “The Martyrology of Donegall”:

“Tassach of Raholp gave the Body of Christ to Saint Patrick before his death in the monastery of Saul”.

Saint Elfleda (Ælfflæd), Abbess of Whitby, England (+714)

February 8

Saint Ælfflæd (654–714) was the daughter of King Oswiu of Northumbria and Eanflæd. She was abbess of Whitby Abbey, an abbey of nuns that were known for their skills in medicine, from the death of her kinswoman Hilda in 680, first jointly with her mother, then alone. Ælfflæd was particularly known for her skills in surgery and her personal attention to patients, as was Hilda, who was known for her personalized medical care.

Most of Ælfflæd’s life was spent as a nun. When she was about a year old, her father, King Oswiu of Northumbria, in thanksgiving for his victory over Penda of Mercia at the Battle of the Winwæd, handed her over to abbess Hilda to be brought up at Hartlepool Abbey. When Hilda left to found Whitby Abbey in Continue reading “Saint Elfleda (Ælfflæd), Abbess of Whitby, England (+714) – February 8”
