The Martyrs Alla and Larissa
April 8th (March 26th Old Calendar)
Sts. Alla and Larissa suffered together with other martyrs during the first half of the 4th century in Gotha, where by the order of the tsar Ungerik they were burned in the church during liturgical services.
St. Gaatha, wife of the other tsar of Gotha, together with her daughter Duklida, gathered the remains of the holy martyrs and departed with them to Kizik (in Crimea). When St. Gaatha returned to Gotha, the enraged pagans stoned her. Her daughter St. Duklida gave up her soul peacefully in Kizik.
