Saints and Scholars of Christian Antioch

From an interview with Monk Elia by Road to Emmaus (6:3, 2005).

Can you recount some of the most well-known saints?

MONK ELIA: There were thousands of saints who originated from Antioch. For example, of the apostles and disciples: Sts. Peter and Paul the Apostles, the founders and patron saints of the Patriarchal See of Antioch; St. Quartos the Apostle, one of the Seventy, the founder and patron of the Archdiocese of Beirut; St. John Mark the Evangelist, the founder and patron of the Archdiocese of Byblos; and St. Sila or Silouan the Apostle, one of the Seventy, the founder and patron saint of the Archdiocese of Botrys.
