Saint Theophilus the Recluse of the Kiev Caves (+ 13th cent.)


Very little has been preserved about the life and exploits of Venerable Theophilus the Recluse, who lived in the 12th to the 13th century. He was also known as Theophilus the Wonderworker. His relics rest in the Near Caves of the Kiev Caves Lavra, and is commemorated on October 24th.
