I know that he died before the Synod of Chalcedon. Do you regard him as a saint? Smiley

Yes we do. In the British Orthodox Church he is certainly venerated as a saint.

His feast is Feb 29, Feb 28 on non-leap years on the EO calendar.  Is that shared with the OO?

Having lived and died in the West, where he was not considered a saint, it is not entirely clear that the Cassian commemorated in the East on February 29th is the John Cassian of this thread.

But since that is at present the traditional date, that is the date that is considered his feast.

I'm speaking of the St John Cassian who was a disciple of St John Chrysostom and wrote the book on the Eight Principle Vices.

Yes, I know the John Cassian you mean. But it is not absolutely clear that the calendars which mentioned a Cassian on the 29th February referred to him.

Oh, I just assumed that it was him. Thanks for the info. Tongue
