name meaning "lordly." The Latin form is Cyrillus.

of two great doctors of the Church�patriarchs, the one of Alexandria,
the other of Jerusalem; also to two martyrs, one a young boy, and thus
it became widely known...

memory to us for the sake of Kyrillos Lucar, the Byzantine patriarch,
the correspondent of Laud, and afterwards a martyr. (History of
