Venerable Martinian in Areobindos

St. Martinian in Areobindos (Feast Day - May 18)


Martinian escaped from below,
And now enters the heavenly dimension.

On this day we commemorate our Venerable Father Martinian in Areobindos. We do not have any biographical information about Venerable Martinian, but it is assumed he lived as a monk in or around the Church of the Theotokos in the Areobindos quarter of Constantinople, or perhaps his relics rested there.
