Town and church holidays

On this day, the Orthodox Church honors the memory of St. Theodore Studite, a saint of the 8th and 9th centuries. He was a Byzantine monk, ascetic, church leader and writer. In 796, for continuing to obey the rules of the church and exposing the lawlessness of Emperor Constantine VI, Theodore was tortured and exiled. When Empress Irene came to power Theodore returned and was appointed head of the Studian monastery. Later, Theodore compiled the Studian Rule, which was used by most monasteries.
