Saint Nikodemos

“According to his biographer, Saint Nikodemos of the Holy Mountain (1749-1809) was possessed of ‘great acuteness of mind, accurate perception, intellectual brightness, and vast memory’, qualities which were readily apparent to those who furthered him along in his learning.” ... “Nicodemos aligned himself with the monks known as Kollyvades, who sought a revival of traditional Orthodox practices and patristic literature, and he would spend the remainder of his life at work translating and publishing those works.” [Source]
