Book of Saints – Isidore of Nitria


(Saint) Bishop (January 2) (4th century) Mentioned by Saint Jerome as “a holy venerable Bishop who had welcomed him to Egypt.” This Saint Isidore appears to have passed away at a very advanced age towards the close of the fourth century. Some think that he is identical with Saint Isidore of Pelusium; others that he is the “Isidore” whose successor was ordained by Theophilus of Alexandria.
