Many thanks to all those who sponsor and support the Mystagogy Resource Center; your positive feedback and generosity through financial gifts have been encouraging. Without this support, I would not be able to devote the time I need to produce all that you will see moving forward. Since I am now working by the hour and my time is more limited, I need to figure things out how to best use my time for your benefit, and will then give a progress report some time in the spring. Till then, I encourage all those who do not yet financially support this ministry - yet find some benefit from it - to likewise do so in order that it may continue to be helpful to you and countless others. See links at the bottom of this page to submit your contribution.

Verses

Peter was the former president of Nicaea,
As councillor of the assembly he died and entered a new state.

Saint Peter was Metropolitan of Nicaea during the reign of the iconoclast emperor Leo V the Isaurian (813-820). For his defense of the Orthodox faith and the veneration of sacred icons, he was deposed from his episcopal appointment and suffered in the year 815 and replaced by the iconoclast Inger.

Four letters of Saint Theodore the Studite to Saint Peter are known, written between the years 816-823. He died no earlier than the year 823.
