Book of Saints – Isidore of Pelusium


(Saint) (February 4) (5th century) An Egyptian, a monk from his youth, and afterwards Superior of a monastery he had founded at Pelusium. Though often embroiled in the controversies of his time, he was in great and general esteem both as a theologian and as a guide of souls. What have remained of his letters are remarkable for clearness in the statement of doctrine, and for elegance of diction. He died A.D. 449 or A.D. 450 at an advanced age.
