Summary/Abstract: In the middle of the 11th century Yaroslav I the Wise related Bishop Roger II of Reims – a minister to Yaroslav I – about one of the apocryphal translations of Pope Clement’s I relics. There, Pope Julius I was said to have transferred his predecessor’s relics from Cherson to Rome and, furthermore, when he set the relics down in the Eternal City an island surfaced where the relics had originally rested in a submarine sarcophagus. It will be argued that possibly this narrative originated as early as the 5th century in Cherson as a part of a trilogy involving a martyrdom, a miracle, and a translation.
