The Holy New Martyr Joseph.

Commemorated February 4 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

Born in Aleppo, he had pressure put upon him by the Turks to embrace Islam. Joseph not only refused, but began to denounce the falsehood of Islam and extol the Christian faith. For this he was tortured and beheaded in 1686.
