The Holy Martyrs Cyrenia from Tarsus and Juliana from Rosa
Commemorated on November 1
The Holy Martyrs Cyrenia from Tarsus and Juliana from Rosa 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 Saint Cyrenia, stripped and with shorn head, around Tarsus for ridicule, and then together with Saint Juliana they went to the city of Rosa, where they gave them over to burning.
