The Hieromartyr Hippolytus, Bishop of Rome.

Commemorated January 30 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He suffered for the Faith in the time of Claudius. When, in Rome, the virgin Chrysa was being martyred for Christ, St Hippolytus stood up for her before ' her torturers and denounced them. Because of this protest, he was brought to trial and condemned to death after prolonged torture. They bound his hands and feet and cast him into the sea. Twenty other martyrs suffered with him and Chrysa in about 236.
