Book of Saints – Dositheus


DOSITHEUS (Saint) (February 23) (6th century) An Egyptian solitary, a simple and unlearned man, whose weak health hindered him from practising the austerities of his fellow-monks, but who nevertheless by prayer and self-denial attained to great sanctity. The Lives of the Fathers of the Desert give interesting particulars concerning him.
