St Maximus the Confessor
Feast day: 21 January

St Maximus was born at the end of the 6th century in Constantinople of noble parents and received an excellent philosophical and theological education. Under the Emperor Heraclius (610641), he was among the imperial counsellors. Seeing the spread of the heresy of the Monothelites, with which even the Emperor himself was infected, he left the imperial palace and joined the monks in the Chrysopolis Monastery. Subsequently, Venerable Maximus became the superior of this monastery.

More on St Maximus and the Monothelite heresy see on Allen & Neil Introduction.
