Book of Saints – Julian – 18 October


(Saint) Hermit (October 18) (4th century) This Saint is in all likelihood the famous Saint Julian of Antioch, on whose virtues Saint John Chrysostom preached a noble Homily, and who is also commemorated on January 19. But some writers maintain that the Saint Julian of October 18 was quite another personage. They describe him as an Eastern Solitary, whose cell was at first near Edessa in Mesopotamia, and afterwards on Mount Sinai. Like Saint Julian of Antioch he is admitted to have flourished in the fourth century and to have acquired the surname of “Sabas” (wise).
