Description

Lithography with Saint Stylianos

A lithography with the representation of Saint Stylianos also known as Stylianos the Hermit. Saint Stylianos is known as a protector of children, especially orphans and that is why he is depicted in iconography holding an swaddled infant in his arms. According to tradition he distributed his inheritance among the poor, and left the city to live in a monastery. His zealous devotion and asceticism provoked jealousy on the part of other monks, so he left the monastery to live as a hermit in a cave in the wilderness, where he spent his time in prayer and fasting. He was known for his love to the children. Sometimes parents were  leaving their children with him for a period of time in order for them to receive some spiritual guidance.
