born: Aegina

This Greek boy drove his parents mad because he kept giving things away. When he was 18 he built himself a hermitage on Mount Joannitsa near Corinth, there he worked miracles and the site was turned into an oratory after his death. He was one of the earliest saints to be seen levitating in prayer.
