The Venerable Palladius the Hermit, also Palladius of Antioch and Palladius the Desert Dweller, was a hermit of the fourth century who led an ascetic life in the desert near Antioch in what then was Syria. He is commemorated on January 28.

Remembered as an anchorite, the Venerable Palladius lived a life of struggles that brought him the gift of wonderworking from the Lord. When he was accused of murdering a merchant who was found dead near his cave, his prayers to the Lord were answered when the dead merchant rose up and named his murders.

St. Palladius died at the end of the fourth century, possibly in 390.
