Our Holy Fathers, the Martyrs of Karyes.

Commemorated December 5 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

They suffered at the time of the Union of Lyons, at the hands of the Papists. The Union was the work of the Pope and the Emperor Michael Palaeologus (1260-81). The Protos of the Holy Mountain was hanged, and the others were beheaded with the sword. For details of this, see October 10th.
