The Holy New Martyr Jordan.

Commemorated February 2 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Born in Trebizond, he was a coppersmith by profession. For his open defence of the Christian faith and his denunciation of the falsehood of Islam, he suffered at the hands of the Turks at Galata inConstantinople in 1650. A monk, Gabriel, a reader in the great church in Constantinople, suffered in the same way in 1676.
