Martyr Cyrenia in Cilicia

Commemorated on November 1

The Holy Martyrs Cyrenia and Juliana of Clicia were arrested for confessing the Christian Faith under the governor of Cilicia, Marcian, during the reign of the emperor Maximian Galerius (305-311). They led St Cyrenia, stripped and with shorn head, around Tarsus to be mocked, and then they went to the city of Rosa with St Juliana, where the martyrs were burned alive.
