The Holy New Martyr Jordan
Born in Trebizond, he was a copper-smith by profession. For his open defence of the Christian faith and his denunciation of the false-hood of Islam, he suffered at the hands of the Turks at Galata in Constantinople in 1650. A monk, Gabriel, a reader in the great church in Constantinople, suffered in the same way in 1676.
