Notes

  1. He is unknown in the Synaxaria and the Menaia. His memory is recorded in the Sinaitic Codex 631 (10th - 11th c.) as follows (translation):
    "(In the period of ?) Titus are deposited the relics of (Apostle) Bartholomew in Lipari and of the Holy Martyr Saba Venethalon".
    • (Timothy Themelis. The Menaia of the 1st - 3rd centuries. p. 115 (in Greek)).
  2. "Sabas was born in Collesano, Sicily, at an undetermined date to pious parents named Christopher (see s.v. Christopher and Makarios) and Kale. His father took the monastic habit at the monastery of St. Philip of Agira, and then retired to a hermitage where he was joined by Sabas who also tookmonastic vows. Following an Arab invasion and famine the entire family emigrated to Calabria. Sabas and his brother Makarios then settled in the area of Merkourion, on the border between Calabria and Lucania, later moving on to Latinianon and Salerno in the wake of Arab attacks. Sabas was a great wonderworker, and his vita recounts many of his miracles. He died in Rome on February 6, ca. 990-995 (990-91, according to da Costa-Louillet, following J.B. Pitra). The vita of Sabas, which survives in a 12th-c. manuscript, was written by Orestes, Patriarch of Jerusalem (986-1006), who spent some time in Calabria as a monk and claims personal acquaintance with Sabas. He must have written the vita between 991 and 1006."
  3. His memory is absent from the Synaxarion of Saint Nicodemus and from the Menaia. However his memory is recorded in the Synaxarion of Hippolyte Delehaye, without a summary, and in the Lavreotic (Laurentian?) Codex I 70f. 202v., where it states that St Sabbas, due to his virtuous deeds, which he practiced with piety and modesty from his youth, he was elected Bishop of Dafnousion (Greece). After taking the helm of the local Church he preached the true faith and many of the pagans turned to Christ and were baptized by him.He reposed in peace.
