  Martyrology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Greek Church the nearest equivalent to the martyrology is the Synaxarium.
The most important ancient martyrology preserved to the present day is the Martyrologium sancti Hieronymi, a compilation falsely attributed to Jerome, which in its present form goes back to the end of the 6th century.
It is the result of the combination of a general martyrology of the Eastern Churches, a local martyrology of the Church of Rome, some general martyrologies of Italy and Africa, and a series of local martyrologies of Gaul.

 MARTYROLOGY - LoveToKnow Article on MARTYROLOGY
In the Greek Church the nearest equivalent to the martyrology is the Synaxarium (q.v.).
The most important ancient martyrology preserved to the present day is the compilation falsely attributed to St Jerome, which in its present form goes back to the end of the 6th century.
The chief works on the martyrologies are those of Rosweyde, who in 1613 published at Antwerp the martyrology of Ado (also edition of Giorgi, Rome, 1745); of Sollerius, to whom we owe a learned edition of Usuard (Acta sanctorum Junii, vols.

 St. Blaise
The ninth-century martyrologies of Europe in their lists, which are accompanied by historical notices, give on 15 February the name of St. Blasius, Bishop of Sebaste and martyr.
In the oldest known recension of the so-called martyrology of St. Jerome the name of St. Blasius does not appear; it is only in the later, enlarged catalogues that he is mentioned.
The veneration of the Oriental saint was brought at an early date into Europe, as is shown by the recitals in the historical martyrologies of the ninth century, and the Latin recension of the legend of St. Blasius; so that Blasius became one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages.

 St. Barbara
At about this date there were in existence legendary Acts of her martyrdom which were inserted in the collection of Symeon Metaphrastes and were used as well by the authors (Ado, Usuard, etc.) of the enlarged martyrologies composed during the ninth century in Western Europe.
Barbara has often been depicted in art; she is represented standing in a tower with three windows, carrying the palm of a martyr in her hand; often also she holds a chalice and sacramental wafer; sometimes cannon are displayed near her.

This repetition not only ensured that a local saint was seen to possess attributes of, and to belong undoubtedly to the universal community of saints, but also allowed the listener the pleasure of recognition.
Even though the later “narrative” martyrologies and passions were considered historical accounts, they were not perceived as factual documents.
Martyrologies and passions were generalized portraits designed for ethical instruction and exaltation, having as historical base only the name or a series of names and places.

 Martyrdom
Martyrologies, paeans to martyrs and martyrdom, often declaimed during religious services, embed the events in a cosmic, covenantal drama.
Martyrologies not only detail the martyrdoms but, along with legal sources, tell of rewards associated with the act.
Martyrologies play a part in this training as they do in promoting minor martyrdoms among the wider social group.

 Martyrologies and Church Calendars   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Strictly speaking, the terms martyrology and calendar describe two different types of document, although they are often treated as synonyms.
A calendar only lists one name per day of saints whose feastdays are celebrated in a particular local church, while a martyrology lists several names per day of saints venerated throughout the universal church and does not represent the liturgical usage of any particular church.
A calendar includes the minimum relevant information, the name of the martyr and the location of the martyrdom, while a martyrology, particularly the later ones, in keeping with their roles more as historical source-books, tends to include an abbreviated account of the suffering of the martyr where available.

 Anglo-Saxon Martyrs
Early martyrologies, such as the ‘Jeromian’ Martyrology which was compiled in Italy in the fifth century, were reference books set out according to the calendar year.
The martyrology was a text subject to constant revision designed to bring it into accordance with the observances of any particular monastic house; so no two martyrologies have identical contents, but they often follow similar structural principles.
Among the most informed is the so-called Old English Martyrology, compiled in the later ninth century, perhaps in Mercia, by an anonymous author who was able to draw on the resources of a very substantial library.

There are several Irish martyrologies, the best known of which are the Martyrology of Tallaght (MT) which is an Irish version of the Hieronymian Martyrology, Felire Oengusso (an old-Irish metrical version of MT), Feilire hui Gormain or Martyrology of Gorman (which may be described as a versified Usuardianum with additional Irish entries).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Martyrology
We still possess the martyrology, or ferial, of the Roman Church of the middle of the fourth century, comprising two distinct lists, the "Depositio martyrum" and the "Depositio episcoporum", lists which are elsewhere most frequently found united.
Among the artificial compilations which have been given the title of martyrologies may be mentioned as more important the "Martyrologium Gallicanum" of André du Saussay (Paris, 1637), the "Catalogus Sanctorum Italiæ" of Philip Ferrari (Milan, 1613), the "Martyrologium Hispanum" of Tamayo (Lyons, 1651-59); the last-named must be consulted with great caution.
It was the publication of the Syriac Martyrology discovered by Wright ("Journal of Sacred Literature", 1866, 45 sqq.), which gave the impetus to a series of researches which still continue.

 SCTR 26 Class Prep 13 (Murphy, SCU)
Martyrologies of women at this later date are infused with sexual innuendo, despite (or because of?) the praise of the female martyr's virginity.
Thesis : Martyrologies written during persecution, like the Martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicitas, present female martyrs in a sexualized way, but the presentation becomes almost pornographic in martyr accounts written after the persecutions have ended (Ambrose, Prudentius).
This is because asceticism has replaced martyrdom as the way to commit oneself completely to God, and because women are so identified with the body that their only way to demonstrate virtue is physically.

It was an identity that was coexistent with the godly in the life of the church, as indelible as God's providential decree and far more important than transient empires and other man-made political formations.
In the preface, entitled on the usefulness and profit ['fructu'] of this history, to the impressive Latin martyrology published in Basel in 1559 (the Rerum in Eccesiæ Gestarum […]) Foxe was explicit about his objectives as an historian.
Crespin's martyrology was first published in 1554 and kept evolving in the hands of its editors - Crespin and his continuator Simon Goulart - until 1619.

Among the positive effects of the English Conquest of Ireland in the late twelfth century was the stimulus it gave to the writing of the records of the Irish saints.
All four martyrologies edited in this volume arguably date to the period immediately after the Conquest, when the Irish Church, faced with accusations of backwardness and irregularity, was at pains to demonstrate its modernity and orthodoxy.

News about them are found in local traditions, in the Passions and in the martyrologies.
The most ancient source are the martyrologies or rather the books of the anniversaries of the martyrs that are object of commemoration in a local Church; the martirologies had as their source the liturgical calendars of the local Churches, in use still before the Constantinian peace (313 A.D.).
Saint Simplicius and his companions martyrs are remembered in numerous martirologies, in first place in the one called Geronymianum, compiled in 431-450; in it there was a "laterculus" or inscription regarding the anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Simplicius and his companions.

 ST.EXPEDITUS (Espedito, Expedito, Expedit)
Information concerning St.Expeditus can be found only in martyrologies, so we cannnot obtain precise details about his existence.
As we can see, St.Expeditus is commemorated in the martyrology on April 18th and on April 19th, but the first date seems to be a mistake (mistakes were very common in martyrologies).
The only facts that seem to be certain concern the day (19th April) and the place of his death (Melitene - nowadays Malatya, Turkey) ; nothing can be said about the circumstances and the time of his martyrdom (someone states that he died under Diocletian, but this hypothesis is not demonstrated).

The witness to Christ borne even to the shedding of blood has become a common inheritance of Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans and Protestants, as Pope Paul VI pointed out in his Homily for the Canonization of the Ugandan Martyrs.
The Church of the first centuries, although facing considerable organizational difficulties, took care to write down in special martyrologies the witness of the martyrs.
These martyrologies have been constantly updated through the centuries, and the register of the saints and the blessed bears the names not only of those who have shed their blood for Christ but also of teachers of the faith, missionaries, confessors, bishops, priests, virgins, married couples, widows and children.
