(Saint) Abbot (December 5) (6th century) A Cappadocian by birth who became one of the most famous of the Palestinian monks, in whose discipline he established a much-needed Reform. He himself was remarkable for his austerity of life and for scrupulous exactitude in the observance of his monastic Rule. In various journeys to Constantinople he rendered great service to the Eastern Church, then much troubled by the Eutychian heretics. He died A.D. 532, at the age of ninety-four.
