Book of Saints – Hypatius and Andrew


(Saints) Martyrs (August 29) (8th century) Hypatius, a monk, and Andrew, a church sacristan, both Lydians, so edified by their holy lives the then Bishop of Ephesus that he consecrated the one a Bishop and ordained the other a priest. They suffered martyrdom at Constantinople under the Emperor Leo the Isaurian, after bravely enduring atrocious tortures in defence of the Orthodox belief in the duty of honouring holy pictures. Their bodies were thrown to the hounds to be devoured (A.D. 735).
