Book of Saints – Isidore – 15 January


(Saint) (January 15) (4th century) An Egyptian priest and ascetic, the spiritual father of more than a thousand monks, the friend and supporter of Saint Athanasius and later of Saint John Chrysostom. He played a notable part in the controversies of his time, and underwent much unjust persecution at the hands of Theophilus of Alexandria. Palladius enlarges much on his virtues and on his eminent holiness of life. He died at an advanced age, shortly after A.D. 400.
