In a population largely illiterate and with time measured by the “seasons”, the daily passing of the year was recorded by the Church canonical calendar.

This one is for June with the most notable being the birth of Mary and the most noticeable being in the second week for the “Fools for Christ” Sts Onuphrius and St Peter of Athos..
