Dear Editors, Greetings! I noticed that this article states, "Saint Andrew of Constantinople is considered to be the first such saint, although Saint Basil of Moscow is also widely known." Actually,: new section
::Cf. also: http://www.goarch.org/en/chapel/saints.asp?contentid=697 Looks like the difference is that the above (St. Xenia of St. Petersburg) comes from a Russian source, and the entry for St. Simeon comes from a Greek source. --[[User:Basil|Basil]] 08:26, April 20, 2007 (PDT)

Dear Editors,
Greetings! I noticed that this article states, "Saint Andrew of Constantinople is considered to be the first such saint, although Saint Basil of Moscow is also widely known." Actually, there were notable fools for Christ well before St. Andrew of Constantinople who lived in the 10th century. Perhaps you could include correct this by including something like the following text from the article "Foolishness for Christ" from Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foolishness_for_Christ :
 
"The Eastern Orthodox Church records Isidora Barankis of Egypt (d. 369) among the first Holy Fools. However, the term was not popularized until the coming of Symeon of Emesa, who is considered to be a patron saint of holy fools[1][5]. In Greek, the term for Holy Fool is salos."
 
Thank you for your kind service and assistance!
Respectfully yours,
