Orthodox Saint William?
« on: October 10, 2010, 09:23:59 PM »
I am wondering if there is an Orthodox saint with the name of William? I haven't been able to find one, so I thought I'd ask.

Thank you.

Though I find it hard to believe, I checked this page, which is the most complete list that I've seen online, and it doesn't list a William.

EDIT--Though now checking the Orthodox England site, I see some Williams listed...

"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

Actually, there are at least five of them. Have a look here (PDF file): http://www.allmercifulsavior.com/Calendar/St.%20Hilarion%20Calendar%202003%20Part%202.pdf, p. 26.
