British Saints – a Synaxarion

with information about the Saints, icons and troparia where available, and places of pilgrimage.

Icon of All Saints

For the use of the Orthodox Churches in Great Britain and Ireland.

The Saints can be accessed by name from the alphabetical and geographical lists in the menus at the top of each page. There are also menus based on various criteria, such as rank, feast day, icons, troparia, and visits to sites.

From each Saint’s page we can navigate forwards or backwards to the approximate next saint in time.

Not every saint is found here, nor saints about whom we know next to nothing. Those included have been selected from a perception of his or her contribution to the church of the time in a specific region.

Our focus is always on the one Communion of Saints in whose presence we worship, whose prayers we ask, and whom we meet even now in the liturgy in the Kingdom of God.

All these British saints are now remembered at one place or another throughout the year.
