      * St. Sulian of Cornwall
      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


      St. Sulian (Silin) of Cornwall
      -----------------------------------------------

      6th century. Saint Sulian may be identical with the Breton Saint Sulien
      of Cornouaille and Domonée. He was the founder and abbot, but not the
      patron, of Luxulyan in Cornwall. There is considerable, but
      understandable, confusion between Sulian and another Saint Sulinus of
      East Brittany and the Welsh Saint Tysilio (Suliau). There appears to be
      three separate saints (Farmer).

      Troparion of St Sulian Tone 5
      O fervent St Sulian,/ thou didst persevere, overcoming all obstacles,/
      and thy life as a monk was radiant./ Thou didst work miracles/ when
      living in thy monastery,/ and wonders shone forth from thy tomb./ We
      praise thee, holy Abbot Sulian.
