The Theological School of Patmos was founded by the deacon Makarios Kalogeras in 1713 AD and is situated on the hillside directly above the Cave of the Apocalypse. The school is a spiritual legacy of St. Christodoulos of Patmos who included it in his original plans for the island of Patmos; Emperor Alexios I issued a deed of title in which he mentions it to be "an abode of learning where local disciples will gather."


The present theological school was founded by a local Patmian man, called Makarios Kalogeras[1], in the eiteenth century.
  1. Makarios Kalogeras was a deacon of the Bisop of Nicomedia and was inspired by his studies in Constantinople to revive the Greek education, which had deteriorated under the Turkish occupation.
