There is another group, of 13 saints, known as "Cappadocian Fathers" (or "Syrian Fathers") from the sixth century who are considered the founders of Georgian monasticism, commemorated on May 7.


The Cappadocian Fathers are Ss. Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and Gregory of Nyssa, who were bishops in Cappadocia (now central Turkey) in the fourth century. They, along with St. Athanasius the Great, laid the pattern for formulating the doctrines related to the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
