NEW ANTIMINS in our church contains relics of one of the five new youth martyrs of Constantinople. Here is a brief description of their lives and suffering for Christ… Holy New Martyrs Emmanuel, George, Michael, Theodore, and George were young men from the Greek island of Samothrace in the northern Aegean Sea, except St. Michael, who was from Cyprus. During the Greek Revolution of 1821, the island was occupied by the Turks, who came and murdered the Christian inhabitants, while many women and children were taken as slaves to the East and Egypt. The four martyrs, along with St. Michael, were sold throughout various places in Turkey. At some point, the Five New Martyrs returned to Samothraki and followed the Christian life. At the time, the one appointed to the position of kadi/governor in Makri was a tough man named Aptourrachman, who was a zealot for Islam. In 1835, he captured the Martyrs and imprisoned and tortured them. Despite the terrible tortures, the Martyrs confessed their faith in Christ. The Kadi then wrote to Constantinople to his boss Vasaf, a secretary of Sultan Mahmoud, informing him about the Martyrs who denied the religion of Mohammed. The decision came back as a conviction. The first to be martyred was St. Michael, the oldest, who was cut to pieces with their swords. Sts. Theodore and George were hanged, and so received the crown of martyrdom. The much-suffering St. Manuel was thrown on iron hooks and was pinned in the shape of the Cross. They cast the blessed young St. George on the hooks similarly, but oh, the miracle! The nails bent and did not at all pin the body of the Saint. After this, they threw him on an iron awl and dropped him so that his body would be nailed. In this way, the martyr St. Manuel shortly delivered his holy soul into the hands of God, while the martyr St. George stayed riveted for twenty-four hours in unbearable pain. These Turks, when they saw that he was still alive after so long, shot him in the head and thus ended the life of this glorious martyr. Christians, having received the authorization, buried the remains of the Holy Martyrs at the place of their martyrdom.
