      Feast Day of Mor Hananyo (St. Ananias) 21 November

      21st November is the feast day of Mor Hananyo (St. Ananias), the
      metropolitan of Kfartuta (793-800), in whose name the famous Syrian
      orthodox Monastery in SE Turkey, which is also known as Kurkuma
      Dayro or Deir ez-Za`faran monastery, is known. From 1293 until 1932
      this monastery was the official seat of the Syrian Orthodox
      Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East. This monastery which has
      produced 21 Patriarch's, 7 Maphriyono's and 111 bishops, have the
      tombs of 52 Syrian Orthodox Patriarchs. This is one of the most
      known and ancient structure of Upper Mesopotamia, and the religious
      center of the Syrian Orthodox Community.
