12 Monks, Martyred at Vatopedi on Mt Athos

Twelve monastic martyrs suffered martyrdom with Saint Euthymius, the igumen of the Vatopedi Monastery on Mount Athos for denouncing the Latinizing Patriarchs Michael Paleologos (1261-1281) and John Bekkos (1275-1282) as heretics. Saint Euthymius was drowned in the sea, and the monks were hanged.
