Cretan Saints

   
Metropolitan of Rethymnon and Avlopotamou Titus M. Sylligardakis
Translated by Reverend Dean Timothy Andrews
Editors: George Christakis, Ralph J. Masterjohn

“We have followed the original text’s format which divides the book into three sections: Sermons on 32 Saints, followed by Biographical Notes on Cretan Saints which includes 11 additional saints; and concludes with a section of Tables and Lists of the saints’ chronology and the historical periods in which they lived. Metropolitan Titus also more broadly identifies 3 major martyric periods: Apostolic or early martyrs of the pre-Constantinian period, New Martyrs of the iconoclastic period, and a second wave of New Martyrs during the 400 years of the Turkish occupation of Greece.”
—“Editors’ Forward”
