(Saint) (October 3) (4th century) A disciple of Saint Hilarion, under whom he led a monastic and eremitical life at Majuma in Palestine. He was the faithful companion of the same Saint in his travels in search of retreats of even deeper solitude than the waste places of Palestine. At Saint Hilarion’s death (A.D. 371) Saint Hesychius conveyed the remains of the Saint back to their own monastery in the Holy Land, where he some years later himself fell asleep in Christ.
