Malankara Syriac Orthodox Calendar
« on: February 07, 2016, 03:53:40 PM »
So I was given a calendar from the Malankara Syriac Orthodox.  So I ripped off January and looked at the Saints' feasts for last month.  I was surprised to find an interesting name on January 18, "Maximus the Confessor."  Is this who I think it is, or is it a different person?  Could this have been adopted from the EO calendar?

I'll post a pic soon.

It should be on 21 January and not 18 January. 

Your question is one reason I wanted to know the origins of the calendar(s) reproduced in a particular book on this subject (I bumped that thread recently).  It's possible that this is the same Maximus as the EO saint who is commemorated on the same date, but it's also possible that it's a different saint with the same name (e.g., 5 December). 
How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

Hmmm...I looked at November and December.  I found nothing out of the ordinary with regards to saints (just repeats).

I wrote before looking at your photo...it seems the calendar you have is selective in the dates featured.
