Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

Synaxis of Saint John the Theologian in the Biatos or Beotos


Verses

The child of thunder greatly sounded again,
In Biatos where his house stands.

It is not certain today where Biatos or Beotos is, as indicated by the confusion of how the place is pronounced in the Synaxarion of Constantinople, however it probably refers to a district in or around Constantinople where a church dedicated to Saint John the Theologian stood. On the 10th of July, this church celebrated its Synaxis.
