Book of Saints – Martyrs of Constantinople – 8 July


MARTYRS OF CONSTANTINOPLE (July 8) (9th century) The Martyrs known as the Abrahamite Monks, from the name of the monastery in which they lived their Religious life. They withstood the Iconoclast Emperor Theophilus and were on that account punished with exile and death (A.D. 832). Unfortunately, authentic details of their sufferings are no longer obtainable, the accounts extant being clearly of late date and untrustworthy.
