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...

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.
