this article should be reviewed for its content and "Merged" INTO the article:

I think that titles of Saint should reflect the way that Sinaxaria normally categorise the Saints. Usually they will refer to the Saint from what town they are from and then any pet names ... for example, rather than St Demetrios the Myrrhgusher ... it would be Saint Demetrios of Thessalonike the Myrrhgusher.

Hi, I apologise for removing this word before discussing it. It was really bothering me for the following reason. Cult is a word that is used as negative ... from what I can read, we are supposed to remain neutral when presenting factual information. So, if a group of followers formed sometime during the 6th century, then we can not label it a cult or otherwise since in an encyclopedic context we can not imply if their objectives for following the saint are a negative or positive.
