ST. ANDREW OF CRETE, M.

ST. ANDREW, surnamed the Calybite, or the Cretan, was a holy monk, and a zealous defender of holy images in the reign of Constantine Copronymus, by whose orders he was whipped to death without the walls of Constantinople, in the circus of St. Mamas, on the 17th of October, 761. His name occurs in the Roman Martyrology. See Theophanes, p. 363; Fleury,1. 43, n. 31; Baillet, &c.
