Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

Our random article today is Hesychius of Sinai.

Hesychius of Sinai (?-380) was a hieromonk of Saint Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai, and an ascetic author of the Byzantine period in literature.

Nothing definite is known concerning his career or the exact time at which he lived. Only fragments of the literary remains of this author have been preserved, and they have still to be collected and separately criticized. In manuscripts, as a rule, he is given the honorary title of "Our Holy Father" and, in cases where the authenticity of this title on a manuscript is certain, it is sufficient to distinguish him from others of the same name, and especially from the celebrated Hesychius of Jerusalem.

He is included in the Synaxarion of the Greek Orthodox Church, which states that he was the Hegumen of Saint Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai in the 7th century, and his feast day is held on March 29. His liturgical celebration in the Roman Catholic Church is on 3 October.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 21:08 UTC on Sunday, 10 September 2017.
