St Maxim, Archbishop of Wallachia.

Commemorated January 18 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Son of the Serbian despot Stefan the Blind and his wife Angelina, he received the monastic habit in the monastery of Manasija. Having pressure put on him by the Turks, he fled into the mountainous part of Romania, where he was consecrated to the vacant archiepiscopal see of Wallachia. He reconciled the disputing military commanders Radul and Bogdan and averted war between them. He returned to Krusedol in his last years, founded a monastery there and, after great spiritual endeavour, entered into rest on January 18th, 1546. His uncorrupt and wonder-working relics lie even to this day in that monastery.
