Our Holy Father Olympius the Iconographer of the Kiev Caves.

Commemorated August 17 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Making copies of the faces of the saints on wood, he copied their virtues in his own soul. He healed a man of leprosy, saw an angel of God and died peacefully in the Lord in old age, in 1114.
