Synaxis of Saint John the Theologian in the Biatos or Beotos


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.
