The SchemaMonk Evthymii of Pechersk

Commemorated on January 20, August 28 and on the 2nd Sunday of the Great Lent

      The SchemaMonk Evthymii of Pechersk (XIV Century), imposed upon himself a vow of silence, opening his mouth only for Divine-services and for prayer. The silent schema-monk priest ate only herbs. He was buried in the Farther Feodosiev Cave of the Kievo-Pechersk monastery. His memory is also 28 August and on the 2nd Sunday of Great Lent.
