In the good ‘ol days the Christians were acquainted with solemnize the commemoration of a saint’s demise for Christ at the place of affliction. In the fourth century, neighboring wards started to trade feasts, to exchange relics, to isolate them, and to participate in a typical devour; as is appeared by the welcome of St. Basil of Caesarea (397) to the priests of the region of Pontus.
