HE
ORTHODOX
lSTERN
CHVRCH
ADRIAN
FORTESCVE
 
An
Orthodox
Canonization
For
the
first
time
for
many
years,
the
Greek
Orthodox
Church
has
added
a
new
saint
to
its
calendar,
Nicodemus
the
Haghiorite,
an
eighteenth-century
monk,
havingbeen
pro-
claimed
a
saint
by
the
Holy
Synod
of
the
Oecumenical
Patriarchate.
The
last
canonization
in
any
of
the
Orthodox
Churches
appears
to
have
been
that
of
St.
Seraphim
of
Sarov,
by
the
Holy
Synod
of
the
Russian
OrthodoxChurch
in
1903.
The
feast
of
Nicodemus
the
Haghiorite
will
be
observed
on
July
14th,
the
anniversaryof
his
death
in
1809.
Liturgical
offices
for
its
observance
are
being
prepared
by
monks
of
the
Monastery
of
Haghia
Lavra
on
Mount
Athos,
and
will
shortly
be
submitted
to
the
Oecumenical
Patriarchate
for
approval.
Born
in
1748,
Nicodemus
the
Haghiorite
bore
the
name
of
Nicolaus
during
his
early
life
and
education
in
Smyrna,
taking
the
name
of
Nicodemus
in
religion,
when,
at
the
age
of
twenty-
six,
he
joined
the
community
of
St.
Dionysius,
on
Mount
Athos,
where
he
spent
the
rest
of
his
life.
His
fame
rests
on
his
extensive
spiritual
writings,
but
his
best-known
work
is
an
anthology,
the
Philokalia,
a
compilation
of
passages
from
theearly
Fathers
;
the
British
Museum
possessesa
copy
of
the
first
editionthat
used
to
belong
to
an
eighteenth-century
English
convert
to
Orthodoxy,
a
son
of
Lord
North.
The
Philokalia
was
assembled
by
Nicodemus
in
collabora-
tion
with
BishopMacarius
of
Corinth,
andwas
first
published
at
Venice
in
1782.
In
1796
Nicodemus
produced
a
Greek
version
of
two
well-known
Catholic
works,
the
Spiritual
Combat
and
Path
to
Paradiseof
Lorenzo
Scupoli,
under
the
title
of
UnseenWarfare
;
and
in
1
800
a
book
ofmeditations
based
on
the
method
of
St.
Ignatius
Loyola.
He
also
helped
Bishop
Macarius
with
a
revision
of
his
book
urging
frequent
communion
(1777
;
1783).
All
of
which
makes
us
think
how
close
east
and
west
can
be,
while
divided
by
a
gulf
so
difficult
to
bridge.
Two
volumes
of
translations
from
the
Russian
version
of
the
Philokalia,
and
a
translation
of
the
drastic
Russian
revision
of
the
Unseen
Warfare,
have
been
published
in
recent
years
by
Messrs.
Faber
and
Faber.
