From Persia to Crete

(p.221) Five Women Martyrs
The Garb of Being

Sebastian Brock

Fordham University Press

Five named women, to whom a wayside shrine in Crete is dedicated, can be identified as five Persian martyrs under Shapur II, executed by their former teacher. As a first step in tracing how their cult reached Crete, the Syriac narrative of their martyrdom is compared with the accounts in the Synaxarium Constantinopolitanum and the Synaxaristes of St Nikodemos.
