Pre-Schism Saints of the Orthodox Roman Patriarchate*

  • AGRICOLA, bishop of Nevers in France from 570 until his repose in 594.
  • ANDREW OF FLORENCE, a bishop of Florence who reposed circa 407.
  • DIONYSIUS OF AUGSBURG, venerated as the first bishop of Augsburg. He is traditionally thought to have been baptised and later consecrated bishop by St. Narcissus (17th September). He was martyred under Diocletian, circa 303.
  • FAUSTINIAN, the second Bishop of Bologna (fourth century). He reorganised his diocese and lived to be a firm defender of Orthodoxy against Arianism.
