Our venerable and God-bearing Father St. '''Nikephoros of Chios''', was a [[hieromonk]] born around 1750 in the town of Kardamyla, in the northeastern part of the famous Aegean island of [[Metropolis of Chios|Chios]]. He was educated in Chios, taught and wrote in Chios, led a life of spiritual endeavor there, and died there in 1821. He loved Chios as his fatherland, and as a place where piety and learning were flourishing. For this reason, and because no occasion arose for him to leave the island, he remained within its confines throughout his lifetime.
