Our Holy Fathers Theodosius the Bulgarian and Romanus his pupil
(February 17)



As a monk, Theodosius settled not far from the town of Trnovo, where he founded a community which became known as 'Theodosius's' after him. He was prominent in the Council in Bul-garia against the Bogomils in 1360. Upholding the Orthodox faith at that Council, he put the Bogomils to shame by his reasoning. He finished his earthly course in Constantinople in 1362. His disciple, Romanus, continued in asceticism in Theodosius's community until his death.
