Saint Cosmas of Aetolia or Cosmas the Aetolian or Patrokosmas which means «Father Cosmas» was recognized as «Equal to the Apostles» for his contribution to the Church. Saint Cosmas was born in the Greek village of Mega Dendron in the region of Aetolia and he studied theology before becoming a monk after a trip to Mount Athos. In 1760 he was authorized by the Patriarch to begin missionary tours in the villages of Thrace, West Greece and Northern Greece. For about twenty years Saint Cosmas established many church and schools in villages and towns. He preached the word of God in plain and understandable language and at the same time he strengthened the mind of the enslaved race in the difficult years of Ottoman rule.
