Commemoration of Sts. Hipirikians, Martyred in Samosat

Noted 25 октября

Sts. Hipirikians (Huperichians) were seven martyrs from the town Samosat(a) of Pokr Haik (Armenia Minor), during the reign of the King Maximinos, in the 3rd-4th centuries AD. During the festive celebrity held in honor of heathen idols they were praying in their house. Their five heathen friends visit them and ask the reason for not participating in the festivity. Listing to St. Hipirikians’ sermon concerning the fact that Christianity is a true religion, they become followers of Christ. All of them are taken to the court, but they remain loyal to their faith – Christianity and are martyred.
