The Holy Martyrs Uianor (Vianor) and Siluanos (Sylvanus)
Commemorated on July 10
Saint Uianor came from the Psidia
district in Asia Minor. As a confessor of Christianity they brought him to the
governor of the city of Isauria in Likaoneia, who demanded that Saint Uianor
renounce Christ. The saint stood steadfast in the true faith, in spite of the
refined tortures. A man by the name of Siluanos beheld the suffering of the
martyr. The endurance and bravery of Saint Uianor inspired the faith of Christ
in Siluanos, and he openly declared this. They therewith cut out his tongue and
then cut off his head. Saint Uianor after long torturing likewise was beheaded.
