Information on a saint (Charalambis)
« on: January 14, 2014, 06:49:41 PM »
Hey all!

I was wondering where I might be able to find information (preferably online or freely accessible) regarding a particular saint. General information is scarce.

The saint I am interested in is known as St. Charalambis. He is not the Greek Charalambis, but is I believe known in Russian Orthodox tradition. He is one of the Saloi saints, and I believe "Fool-For-Christ" may be part of his title. I've only encountered him in the writings of Kyriacos Markides, a sociology professor who writes about the Orthodox tradition.

If anyone has more resources (and if I'm totally confused, please enlighten me), I would appreciate it.

He was from Pskov. He was from XVth century. His feast is on May 15 (whenever you think it is). That's all what google said.

I have found these accounts, in Russian, not English, of the saint's life:

http://www.saints.ru/e/Evfrosin_Pamfil_Pskovskie.html

His feast day is on May 15/28, and on the commemoration of All Saints of Pskov, the third Sunday after Pentecost.

Did the saint heal a sick person with a miracle?...

I know exactly which Haralambis the OP is referring to.  He is a Greek. He is not officially glorified as a saint.

Thanks for the links! I would have to read the book I found his name in again in order to remember which one he is. Now that I think about it, it would make sense for it to have been Greek, given that Markides mostly writes about Greek and Oriental Orthodoxy. For some reason I thought Charalambis was Russian. Not sure. In any case, thanks for the help!
