Abba Dorotheus.


Saint Dorotheus was born in Gaza, in Palestine, and lived at the end of the 6th and the beginning of the 7th centuries. In his youth, he had learned many secular sciences and was well to do. He was in contact with the Elders Barsanuphius and John, and through their influence became a monk in the monastery of Abba Sveridus. Later he became abbot of a neighboring monastery. All his 21 instructions and some epistles have been preserved. He died in the year (circa) 620.
