Transcript WITH THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF ASIA MINOR. 31 GREEK CHURCH OF SAINT THEODORE, PERGAMU& ASIA Ml The Hagiography of the modern Greeks resembles, in many respects, the Mythology of their ancestors. Their saint- are divided into Megalo and Micro, like the Major and Minor deities of their pagan forefathers. They attribute to them preternatural powers and miraculous gifts, the exercise of which is displayed pretty much in the same manner in both; and there are many of the same name, to each of whom the actions of all are sometimes attributed. The name of Ayoa Theodoros is borne by five individuals in the Greek church, who have all festivals in different months in the year; there were three edifices consecrated to them in the capital ; and churches bearing their name are found in every part of the empire where a Greek community exists, at this day Ayos Theodoros, which the church of Pergamus acknowledges, was called Stratiolites, or "the Soldier." He wai born at Ileraclea, and was general under Licinius, the rival of Constantine the Great After various acts of valour and services to the - was decapitated by the tyrant, in 319, for his attachment to tin' ( h: ;se. He brought by his adherents, to be buried at Apamea, which was thence called Theodorop and pilgrims visited his shrine, and fulfilled vows in M ritual meadow" beside it, where many miracles were performed. His personal powers did not cease with his death. Like the twin-brother I rand Pollux, he ap| i battle, and discomfited the enemies of his votaries. Six hundred and fifty years after his death, the wicked Johannes Zemisces, by his aid obtained a signal victory. He is represented in armour with a sword and shield, consonant to his church-militant character. I lis sffgy formed one of the twelve flammulcT on the ensigns of the empire : his shield if ed in the church at Dalisand, in Asia; his body was brought by Dandolo from Constantinople to Venice, in 1260 ; but his head was claimed by another place, and deposited at Cajeta. Other saints, of the same name, had various similar acts attributed to them, and were frequently confounded to jet her. Theodore i 1 itia, was a prophet, and predicted that Mauricius should he emperor, which accordingly took place; and he was afterwards sent for to the imperial palace, to confer his blessing upon the new- royal family. Another Theodore was particularly distinguished for his miracles. In language of his panegyrist "he expelled devils, healed distempers, and conferred miraculous gifts on all who touched his tomb." A fourth, seized with prophetic inspiration, and while sailing oathe Nile, exclaimed - that Julian the from Christianity \\a and his death was found to have occurred at that moment, in Persia : and so he emula Apollonius Tyanaeus in declaring the death :ian. The fate of the last of the name is somewhat peculiar: he lived at the era of the reformation oi the Greek church, begun by Leo: he adhered rigidly to the worship of images, which was then proscribed, and
