HOLY SEVEN MACCABEES MARTYRS, WITH THEIR MOTHER SALOME AND TEACHER ELEAZAR 9429 The Seven Holy Maccabean Martyrs: Habim, Antonin, Guriah, Eleazar, Eusebon, Hadim, Marcellus, their mother Solomonia and their teacher Eleazar suffered in the year 166 before the Birth of Christ under the impious Syrian emperor Antiochos Epiphanos. Antiochos Epiphanos introduced pagan customs in Jerusalem and throughout all Judea. But there were those, who continued to believe in the coming of the Saviour. The seven Maccabean brothers with their mother Solomonia and their teacher Elezar were brought to trial in Antioch by the emperor Antiochos Epiphanos. They fearlessly acknowledged themselves as followers of the True God, and refused to offer sacrifice to the pagan gods. Since they denied the worship of the pagan gods they were given over to fierce tortures before giving their lives over to the one True God.
