Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain
St. Nicodemus was born c. 1749 in Naxos, Greece. In 1775 he became a monk at Mount Athos. He worked with Saint Macarius Notaras of Corinth to compile the Philokalia, a defining work on monastic spirituality. He edited and reworked two books on Western spirituality which had already been translated into Greek and wrote many original works including Lives of the Saints.
