Blessed Maximus the Greek.

Commemorated January 21 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He was born in Greece, whence he was called to the court of the Russian Tsar Vasilii Ivanovitch as Imperial librarian and translator. He laboured much and also suffered much for the truth. He spent a long time in prison, where he wrote the well-known Canon to the Holy Spirit which is still used in church, and entered into rest in the Lord in the year 1556.
