Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Euthymius

Saint Euthymius the Great was born at Melitine in Armenia and his faithful parents were blessed to have a child in old age. Τhey dedicated the child to God and gave him the name Euthymius because with his birth gave them joy. At the year 406 AD he went to Jerusalem and he closed himself in the cave of Saint Theoctistus where he lived in an ascetic way. At that time many monks gathered around him and elected him abbot. Saint Euthymius had received from God the foresighted gift and the power to make miracles. At some point with a small amount of breads he managed to feed four hundred people who had visited his cell on the same day. Also many women managed to have a child with the prayers of the saint.
