Saint Symeon the New Theologian was born in 949 AD in Galata of Paphlagonia to noble and wealthy parents. At a young age, Symeon met a monk from the renowned Monastery of Stoudion, who became his spiritual father. A little later, he went to the Monastery of Saint Mamas under the Abbot Anthony. Two years later, he was tonsured a monk there. When, after some time, the abbot of the monastery died, Saint Symeon was ordained to the priesthood and with the blessing of the Patriarch, Nicholas Chrysoberges, as well as the approval of the other monks, he became abbot of the monastery. The Patriarch’s chancellor Stephanos, Metropolitan of Nicomedia, created problems for the Saint, because of his good reputation. The Saint remained abbot for twenty-five years. In the year 1005 AD, he withdrew to a hermitage near the deserted castle of Chrysopolis, opposite the monastery, which was called Palouketon. He later retired to the Monastery of Saint Marina. He reposed in peace in 1022 AD. His memory is honoured on the 12th of October. Work of the Holy Monastery of the Dormition of the Theotokos (Panorama, Thessaloniki).
