Prologue: hagiographies of the saints

Venerable Joachim of Osogovo     8/29/2013

Joachim lived a life of asceticism in the second half of the eleventh century on the Osogovo mountain in a cave at a place called Sarandopor. Later, in this place, another ascetic, Theodore from the Field of Sheep, to whom St. Joachim appeared in a dream, built a church. Throughout the centuries, many miracles occurred over the relics of the Venerable Joachim and still do today.
